Advanced Zombie Praise

"Sometimes zombie happens."

Team Zombie received some incredible book blurbs from some zombie-rific folks recently.

From Matthew Quick, author of The Silver Linings Playbook, (also a forthcoming film adapted and directed by David O. Russell, starring Bradley Cooper, Robert DeNiro, Julia Stiles, Chris Tucker, and Jennifer Lawrence):

“An irreverent and twisted coming-of-age story with one of the most shocking endings I’ve ever read.”

From John Waters, author of Role Models, and filmmaker best known for his cult films, including Hairspray and Pink Flamingos:

“If you are a ‘youth spy’ and want to know how teenagers feel and what they say when adults aren’t around, Zombie–a funny and very authentic, well-written first novel by J. R. Angelella–should definitely be the next book you read.”

To quote Jeremy Barker, “sometimes zombie happens.”

Keep on.
