The Book Show #1220 - Colson Whitehead
Colson Whitehead won a following with stories that explore a world that's both familiar and a little skewed - or a lot. His new book, Zone One, is, Whitehead says, "about a guy just trying to make it to the next day without being killed. So it's about New Yorkers." Zone One is the story of the human survivors who are clearing the undead from Lower Manhattan.
