Colson Whitehead on Zone One

Thursday, November 10, 2011

Colson Whitehead talks about his new novel, Zone One, a wry take on the post-apocalyptic horror novel about zombies. A pandemic has devastated the planet, leaving behind the uninfected and the infected, the living and the living dead. Now the plague is receding, and Americans are rebuild­ing civilization, focusing on resettling Manhattan. Armed forces have successfully reclaimed the island south of Canal Street—Zone One—but pockets of plague-ridden squatters remain.

SMS Zombies = everyone slowly walking the streets with their heads down bumping into people and objects.

Loved Sag Harbor. Sure to get this one too...
Does Colson think there could be a sequel to the aforementioned Sag Harbor?
