Colson Whitehead is a master at capturing New York at its best—and its worst. The native New Yorker has brilliantly covered his hometown via his national bestsellers, such as The Intuitionist and The Colossus of New York, among others. In his latest novel, Zone One, the wordsmith shows what life would be like if zombies took over our fair city, as well as the aftermath of a world divided by those not infected and the infected, the living and the living dead. At tonight’s Zone One Paperback Release Party, the author will read from the book, take questions from the audience, and sign copies.
