Love in the Time of Zombies

It’s 2017, and a raging virus has drastically reduced the world’s population of men, transforming all but a fraction into a race of putrid, brain-dead zombies. So what’s single, ambitious 23-year-old Hattie Cross to do for fun, not to mention romance? In this hilarious marriage of post-apocalyptic fiction and supersmart chick-lit with a wry twist, novelist Lynn Messina spoofs dating manuals, monsters, and the superficial media world, all the while creating a feisty, funny heroine with heart.
