The Making of Zombie Wars
Author: Aleksandar Hemon
“Aleksandar Hemon is on fire.” —Vanity Fair
“His writing style is as vital and rewarding as ever. . . . The kind of writing that pulls you in and holds you there.” —San Francisco Chronicle
Joshua Levin has a reasonably comfortable Chicago apartment, a mildly dysfunctional family sprinkled throughout the suburbs, a steady job teaching ESL, a devoted girlfriend who lives down the block, and a laptop full of screenplay ideas—one of which he thinks, might turn out to be good: Zombie Wars.
But all it takes is a few unexpected events—his already unhinged army vet of a landlord experiencing something of a psychotic break, a moment of weakness (or two) with his sultry Bosnian student—for Joshua’s life to descend into chaos. As the stakes quickly move from absurd to life-and-death matters, The Making of Zombie Wars takes on real consequence.
