A pandemic has devastated the planet, sorting humanity into
two types: the uninfected and the infected, the living and
the living dead. After the worst of the plague is over,
armed forces stationed in Chinatownâ€™s Fort Wonton have
successfully reclaimed the island south of Canal Streetâ€”aka
Zone One. Mark Spitz is a member of one of the three-person
civilian sweeper units tasked with clearing lower Manhattan
of the remaining feral zombies. Zone One unfolds over three
surreal days in which Spitz is occupied with the mundane
mission of straggler removal, the rigors of Post-Apocalyptic

terms with a fallen world. And then things start to go
At once a chilling horror story and a literary novel by a
contemporary master, Zone One is a dazzling portrait of
modern civilization in all its wretched, shambling glory.
