The Living Dead

The epic and perhaps definitive novel of the zombie apocalypse and its aftermath, written by George A. Romero - the legendary film director who more or less invented the zombie genre - and, following Romero's death, completed by the co-writer of The Shape of Water. . . It begins with one body. A pair of medical examiners find themselves facing a dead man who won’t stay dead. It spreads quickly. In a Midwestern trailer park, an African American teenage girl and a Muslim immigrant battle newly-risen friends and family. On a US aircraft carrier, living sailors hide from dead ones while a fanatic preaches the gospel of a new religion of death. At a cable news station, a surviving anchor keeps broadcasting, not knowing if anyone is watching, while his undead colleagues try to devour him. In DC, an autistic federal employee charts the outbreak, preserving data for a future that may never come. Everywhere, people are targeted by both the living and the dead. We think we know how this story ends. We. Are. Wrong.
