ZOMBIFICATION: Stories from National Public Radio by Andrei Codrescu

ZOMBIFICATION: Stories from National Public Radio

Email this review


There's plenty of Codrescu's trademark wry wit on display in this collection of pieces written for and broadcast on National Public Radio's ""All Things Considered"" from 1989 to 1993, but his serious side is more overtly in evidence than it was in Road Scholar (1993). The author chronicles his observations of Eastern Europe's march ""from the suicide of communism to the rebirth of fascism,"" and he defines ""zombification"" as the world's troubling indifference to suffering, whether in Sarajevo or Washington, DC. A grab bag of emotions, then, but those who prefer Codrescu's lighter side will find everything from nymphettes in San Francisco to art food in Seattle.
