"In this wild, vicious romp through pop culture, "Husk" rips the heart out of the rotting zombie genre and shoves it down your throat. Infection never hurt so good." --Peter Darbyshire, author, "Please" and "The Warhol Gang" "Camus meets Palahniuk in a darkly comic, but surprisingly light-hearted mind-meld in Corey Redekop's "Husk". Sure, the protagonist is a zombie, but this is 2012, and as Redekop rightly observes, we're all zombies now." --Andrew Pyper, author, "The Guardians" and "The Killing Circle" "A superb blood-splattered comedy. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll puke!" --Andrew Kaufman, author, "All My Friends are Superheroes" and "The Waterproof Bible" "Very funny and full of nifty surprises, the story has a big heart, too. . . . The ending is appropriate and packs a serious emotional wallop. Highly recommendable--perhaps to more than zombie geeks." --www.BooklistOnline.com "Sheldon is actually a sensitive and sympathetic creation. . . . Zombiedom's entire pop culture heritage has been thrown against the wall in bleeding chunks, where much of it sticks." --"Toronto Star" (September 30, 2012) "This first-person perspective provides a neat twist, and the author cleverly divides his novel into sections corresponding to Kubler-Ross's five stages of grief." --"Publishers Weekly" (August 27, 2012) "[W]hat gradually emerges is a tender portrait of a profoundly lonely man who finds love and acceptance only after his body has betrayed him . . . an enormously funny book that has real emotional heft underneath all the blood." --"Quill & Quire" (September 2012) "Fans of transgressive U.S. writer Chuck Palahniuk or Jerry Stahl's gonzo novel "Painkillers" -- which theorizes that Nazi physician Josef Mengele is alive and living in San Quentin State Prison -- will appreciate Redekop's dark humour and the wild twists and turns "Husk" takes." --"Winnipeg Free Press" (October 20, 2012) ""Husk" is a completely original and welcome oddity. To put it plainly, this novel has guts." --"The Coast" (January 17, 2013)
