From the author of the Man Booker longlisted The Underground Railroad

A pandemic has devastated the planet, sorting humanity into two types: the uninfected and the infected, the living and the living dead. The worst of the plague is now past, and Manhattan is slowly being resettled. Armed forces have successfully reclaimed the island south of Canal Street – aka ‘Zone One’ and teams of civilian volunteers are clearing out the remaining infected ‘stragglers’.

Mark Spitz is a member of one of these taskforces and over three surreal days he undertakes the mundane mission of malfunctioning zombie removal, the rigours of Post-Apocalyptic Stress Disorder, and attempting to come to terms with a fallen world.

But then things start to go terribly wrong...

Review:

"A dark futuristic satire laced with fiendish humour" (The Times)

"Exhilarating, heartbreaking" (Stuart Kelly Scotland on Sunday)

"Profoundly thoughtful... Zone One is a dark mirror, to be sure, but there is no doubt it is our own age that is being scrutinised here" (New Statesman)

"A zombie story with brains... Whitehead can spin gore into macabre poetry" (Washington Post)

"As satirical and gut-wrenchingly emotional as it is horrific, Zone One is the zombie tale at its literary best" (SciFi Now)

"A cool, thoughtful and, for all its ludic violence, strangely tender novel" (New York Times Book Review)

"Punchy cocktail of horror, comedy and social critique" (Metro)

"Often simultaneously arch and sombre, Whitehead's narrative flares with a sociological intelligence" (Benjamin Evans Daily Telegraph)

Book Description:

The most chilling, witty and downright beautifully written Zombie novel you'll ever read.

Grand Eagle Retail

Book Description Paperback. Condition: new. Paperback. In this wry take on the post-apocalyptic horror novel, a pandemic has devastated the planet. The plague has sorted humanity into two types- the uninfected and the infected, the living and the living dead. Now the plague is receding, and Americans are busy rebuild-ing civilisation under orders from the provisional govern-ment based in Buffalo. Their top mission- the resettlement of Manhattan. Armed forces have successfully reclaimed the island south of Canal Street - aka Zone One - but pockets of plague-ridden squatters remain. While the army has eliminated the most dangerous of the infected, teams of civilian volunteers are tasked with clearing out a more innocuous variety - the 'malfunctioning' stragglers, who exist in a catatonic state, transfixed by their former lives. Mark Spitz is a member of one of the civilian teams work-ing in lower Manhattan. Alternating between flashbacks of Spitz's desperate fight for survival during the worst of the outbreak and his present narrative, the novel unfolds over three surreal days, as it depicts the mundane mission of straggler removal, the rigours of Post-Apocalyptic Stress Disorder, and the impossible job of coming to grips with the fallen world. And then things start to go wrong. Both spine chilling and playfully cerebral, Zone One bril-liantly subverts the genre's conventions and deconstructs the zombie myth for the twenty-first century. From the author of the Man Booker longlisted The Underground Railroad A pandemic has devastated the planet, sorting humanity into two types: the uninfected and the infected, the living and the living dead. Shipping may be from multiple locations in the US or from the UK, depending on stock availability. Seller Inventory # 9780099570141
