Description

"A witty and unexpected take on the zombie genre; I had a great time."
--Charlaine Harris, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Sookie Stackhouse novels Subtitled "A Zombie Memoir," Brains looks at America's favorite walking-dead flesh-eaters from an audaciously original and deliciously gruesome new perspective. Debut author Robin Becker blazes new ground with this story of former college professor-cum-sentient zombie Jack Barnes, who recounts the tale of the resistance he organized in the wake of the recent zombie apocalypse. World War Z; Shaun of the Dead; Pride, Prejudice, and Zombies... Becker tops them all with Brains--a witty, tasty treat for anyone who every spent a midnight glued to a classic George A. Romero zombie epic

“An unusual take on the zombie genre: part Grapes of Wrath, part postmodern memoir.... Becker’s writing is crisp.”
-Publishers Weekly

“Barnes, a rare sentient zombie, tries to develop a program to create a zombie-human nation, but sadly, all he wants is a brain. Yours. A witty and unexpected take on the zombie genre; I had a great time.”
-Charlaine Harris, #1 New York Times bestselling author

-Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author of Patient Zero and Rot & Ruin

“A zombie delight for the thinking man (and woman), Brains is a feast of literary parallels, pop culture references, and historical metaphors, with enough blood, guts, and brains to satisfy any zombie lover’s appetite. Smart, gory, and fun.”
-S.G. Browne, author of Breathers: A Zombie's Lament

“A zany disembowelment of American pop culture. Snarky. Gory. Out of control. Dementedly delicious...brainilingus!”
-Mario Acevedo, author of Werewolf Smackdown

“Witty and clever, Brains is a thinking zombie’s book about what it means to be human, or almost human, and what we all owe each other whether we like it or not.”
-David Wellington, author of Monster Island
