About Memoirs of the Walking Dead, by Jason McKinney

Fantastic and darkly comic, Memoirs of the Walking Dead by new author Jason McKinney is the anything-but-humdrum-look at what goes on during the goings on of the undead. A surprising first novel that’s ironic, wry, and affecting, McKinney proves to be a master of witty repartee, shocking apocalyptic horror, and illustrating the reality of life—what it all truly means.

The Pelican Flu has claimed many victims—Paul Rierson, for one, and Tracey Dobbs, yet another. Half of the city they live in has fallen prey; the kicker is that being forced into zombie-life—the consequence of coming down with the deadly flu—isn’t half bad. The undead, as they navigate their new lives, attempt to lead as normal of an existence as possible. Sure it’s hard with the cravings of living flesh, but it’s not as if zombies just stumble around on autopilot. They think and feel, even fall in love; and, believe it or not, find things worth dying for. For Paul, being a zombie leads him to reconsider how he lived his previous life, as well as what he once thought was important, and he even falls head-over-heels in love with Tracey. He’s so smitten, in fact, that if he had a pulse, it would beat double-time. Still, as grand as undead love is, they’re hunted by the living—but then, no one said life as a zombie would be easy.
