Zone One – Colson Whitehead

Zone One is a novel set in New York City in the midst of a zombie apocalypse. Teams of recruits move through the city block by block trying to clear buildings and expand the zone of safety.

This story focuses on the story of one of these groups and their various members, with particular emphasis on one dubbed Mark Spitz. The novel shares many elements with other works of “zombie lore”, but stands above the others in the colorful metaphors, use of dialogue, and sense of a deeper meaning behind the carnage, destruction, and struggle to survive.

I LOVE spending time with my wife and three kids. We work to play. We love the outdoors and being able to travel. Some of our favorite trips have been to Chicago, Boston, Italy, Germany, and the Netherlands.
