Breathers : a zombie's lament
S. G. Browne
Adult Fiction BROWNE

Comments  Summary  Reviews  Author Notes

From Publishers' Weekly:

Browne's black comedy debut brilliantly reinvents zombie culture for the 21st century. Andy Warner reanimates after the car accident that kills his wife, but is too mangled from his injuries to talk. He lives in his parents' wine cellar, occasionally attending a zombie support group and struggling to rejoin a society that offers the undead no rights, bans them from working and doesn't even punish those who destroy them. When Andy and his fellow zombies-notably Rita, a sexy suicide victim with a lipstick fetish, and Jerry, a Playboy-obsessed stoner-learn why they're so driven to consume human flesh, the repercussions are both tragic and hilarious. Browne neatly mixes humor and extreme violence with a surprisingly tender love story, some witty social satire and an extremely strong narrative voice. (Mar.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
