Here’s something we don’t say often: What a beautiful trade paperback book. French wraps, cool cover, very elegant. “A Caribbean zombie novel navigates the uncertain pathways of the human heart in this cerebral take on the undead. ...Isadore is one of three complicated women in our protagonist's life, one of a triptych that includes the passionate and visceral Patricia Caceres and the naive and open-hearted Mathilde Alverez. If you asked for a Caribbean version of Shakespeare's Weird Sisters, you'd get a portrait of these three characters.
Threats of a zombie apocalypse seem to be around every corner, but what's rare is an intelligent, thoughtful, funny, sentimental, socially conscious, and, yes, gross at times zombie tale infused with Caribbean culture, piques, prejudices, and passions. Pedro Cabiya delivers all of this and more in Wicked Weeds, one gentleman zombie's quest to recapture his lost qualia, that indefinable, internal, sensory perception of self...Whether you consider yourself a lover of zombie fantasies or not, devour Wicked Weeds for its unique perspective, cultural insights, and charged humor." #60019
