Zombie Novels

Occasionally I’ll stumble across an essay that just blows my mind for its breadth and scope. The other day I read Mark McGurl’s essay “Zombie Renaissance” in n+1 Magazine and knew I had to share this with y'all. Somehow Mr. McGurl manages to discuss the state of the novel, realism, fantasy, zombies, politics, and economics all in one thoroughly readable essay. As a piece of literary criticism it is top notch, and I suggest y’all carve out a few minutes to take a gander at it.

You can read the essay here.
