Book Trailer Thursday: Vivian Apple at the End of the World

In Vivian Apple at the End of the World, the title character’s parents are among the 3,000 or so Believers who disappear after a promised, apparent Rapture event. Vivian, in an attempt to figure out what’s going on before a second, also predicted, Rapture occurs, roadtrips with two friends to a nonbeliever enclave in South Dakota. From Dan Kraus’ starred review:”Coyle writes with utter conviction about an uncomfortable idea: what if the ultraconservative, sexist, intolerant, jingoistic side of the religious Right was correct? Don’t be misled by the sunny title and cover image: this is a gritty, often troubling work that is nevertheless infused with humor and heart.”
