Colson Whitehead

Bestselling author Colson Whitehead discusses his post-apocalyptic horror novel, Zone One, about a global pandemic that has devastated the planet and humanity, leaving the living and the living dead in its wake. Zone One is both spine chilling and playfully cerebral as it subverts the genre’s conventions and deconstructs the zombie myth for the 21st Century.
