Okie's fifteen. She lives in New York. She's got a few problems: she's failing geography, her dad's a wimp, and her mother, Sumatra, is a stone cold bitch. But things get a lot worse when Sumatra turns into a zombie and eats Okie's dad.
    
    Clio, Okie's grandmother, lives in Toronto; but since the zombie apocalypse, Toronto's a lot further away than it used to be. Clio suggests that Okie transport Sumatra across the border, because family is family. But coaching Okie by cellphone isn't easy, and Clio has some zombies of her own to contend with. Luckily she has some garden tools.
    
    Naomi Alderman and Margaret Atwood team up for this unusual two-hander. Encompassing love, death, sex, and the meaning of family, The Happy Zombie Sunrise Home will surprise, delight, and convince you of the vital importance of keeping ready supplies of rhubarb and mini-wieners in your freezer at all times.
    
    The story unfolds beginning October 24.

Hi Naomi, hope you are well? This story is great - amazing characterisation and original ideas. Your narration for each character is so distinctive and I particularly love Clio (I hope this is based on someone you know?!?). I would certainly recommend this to family / friends. All the best. Pixie
I like your cover.  Is it possible to catch a zombie with meat on a hook like you would catch a fish with a worm on a hook?  People are always coming up with new and inventive ways to catch zombies.
