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...

Often simultaneously arch and sombre, Whitehead's narrative flares with a sociological intelligence -- Benjamin Evans * Daily Telegraph * Punchy cocktail of horror, comedy and social critique * Metro * A cool, thoughtful and, for all its ludic violence, strangely tender novel * New York Times Book Review * As satirical and gut-wrenchingly emotional as it is horrific, Zone One is the zombie tale at its literary best * SciFi Now * A zombie story with brains... Whitehead can spin gore into macabre poetry * Washington Post * 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 * Exhilarating, heartbreaking -- Stuart Kelly * Scotland on Sunday * A dark futuristic satire laced with fiendish humour * The Times *
