According to Esquire, Colson Whitehead is ‘the coolest writer in the US.’

With Zone One, his latest book, he takes on a zombie novel and once again proves his immense talent. In a post-apocalyptic world, the plague has sorted humanity into two types – the infected and the uninfected. With the plague finally receding however, the Americans are busy rebuilding civilization, beginning with the resettlement of Manhattan. We follow Mark Spitz – one member of a civilian team assisting with the resettlement – through his desperate fight for survival and the impossible job of coming to terms with the fallen world. Both spine-chilling and playfully witty, Zone One might just be the most beautifully written zombie novel you’ll ever read.

Harvill Secker publishes Zone One on 6th October.
