Naomi Alderman By NaomiAlderman Completed

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.

I just died. What a way to start a book. Hardcore grandma. 😆
HOW OLD IS THIS LADY SHE TALKS LIKE A CALM GRANDMA IN THE APOCALYPSE
I'm definitely hooked early. This is just too good. I love, love the tone.
In that case, it will do well with the dead zombies as compost.
That bottled drink sounds like one of those late night infomercial products to do everything and does nothing and is actually bad for you. I hate those.
I've started this a month ago but stopped reading, I don't even know why.
                              But I'm willing to finish it this time.
