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.
