Nerdette Book Club: Rumaan Alam’s ‘Leave The World Behind’

Welcome to the Nerdette Book Club! It’s just like a regular book club except you never have to share your snacks. This month’s pick is Leave The World Behind by Rumaan Alam.

Alam’s latest novel is a witty and suspenseful take on the apocalypse genre that - as our panelists explain - will keep you guessing all the way to the end.

Listen along as host Greta Johnsen breaks it down with book critic Bethanne Patrick (also known as @TheBookMaven on Twitter) and George Washington University creative writing professor Lisa Page.
