Tuesday Book Club with Andrew Pople: Highway Bodies by Alison Evans
In this follow up to her critically acclaimed novel “Ida”, Alison Evans uses zombies to drive a powerful narrative.
“Highway Bodies” follows a group of gender-fluid teenagers struggling to adapt to a post-apocalyptic world in rural Victoria. As always with zombie novels, this book is carried by the strength of their characters.
How do this gang of misfits maintain their identities in a post-civilization (therefore post-gender) zombified society? How do they survive the zombified scourge? How do they rebuild society?
Andrew and Tess muse on all these questions in Tuesday Book Club.
