Rating
An outlandishly funny, unambiguously bloody novel about fame, love, religion, politics, and appetite. It is one thing to die, alone and confused, trapped with your pants down around your ankles in the filthiest bus restroom in existence. It's quite another thing to wake up during the autopsy, attack the coroner, and flee into the wintry streets of Toronto. It's not like Sheldon Funk didn't have enough on his plate. His last audition, for the reality television series House Bingo, had gone disastrously wrong. His mother was in the late stages of dementia. His savings were depleted, his agent couldn't care less, and his boyfriend was little more than a nice set of abs. Now, Sheldon also has to contend with decomposition, the scent of the open grave, and an unending appetite for human flesh. Plus another audition in the morning. For Sheldon to survive his death without literally falling apart at the seams, he has to find a way to balance family, career, and cannibalism, which would be a lot easier if he could stop eating hoboes. Husk, the story of theeveryzombie.

Reviews

"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)
