In a novel being hailed as the “thinking person’s zombie novel,” Mark Spitz patrols Zone One of post-apocalyptic Manhattan, searching for skels (zombies) of both varieties—the violent and the catatonic. He’s part of a patrol responsible for clearing the way for surviving humans to return. Narrator Beresford Bennett delivers Spitz’s account of events as the character’s memory is inspired by found relics. Bennett adopts the existential mood of this novel as Spitz examines the evidence of the former city with deliberate, unsensationalized observations. Bennett’s subtly ironic tone controls the narrow range of emotion that reflects the monotony of life on patrol in a civilization that is no longer.
