Zone One by Colson Whitehead
Zone One begins a few years after a plague separated mankind into survivors and zombies. One of the survivors, nicknamed Mark Spitz, is a sweeper. The military has cleaned out an area of Manhattan, called Zone One, leaving behind the non-flesh-eating zombies called stragglers. They are undead, but they're catatonic creatures repeating their last movements before becoming infected. Mark's job as a sweeper is to clean Zone One of these stragglers, usually by a gunshot to the head. Like most survivors, Mark suffers from Post-Apocalyptic Stress Disorder, a mix of survivor's guilt and memories of the lengths they had to go to survive. But is his life any better than the stragglers? Colson Whitehead's novel has received mixed reviews with the New York Times calling it "a cool, thoughtful and, for all its ludic violence, strangely tender novel, a celebration of modernity and a pre-emptive wake for its demise."
