Ordinary, that is, until the dead start coming back to life, with the intent to feast upon the living! Now this small town of above average citizens must overcome their petty rivalries and hidden secrets in order to survive an onslaught of the dead.
“This is the second best fictional novel about a real-life Minnesota town ever written.” — Vore Gidal, author of Brainerd “I thought this was going to be a book about the rapture... I was wrong.” — Sister Alissa M. Smith, Professor of English, The College of St. Scholastica “There are many reasons to leave Minnesota. Many of them can be found in the pages of this book.” — Dob Bylan, wayward son of Hibbing, MN “If Geillor tries any of his literary pastiche bullshit with my dad’s cartoon characters, I will sue the hell out of him!” — Charles S. Mulchz Jr. “I’m just glad Mr. Geillor set his book in Lake Woebegotten and not Bemidji—We have enough trouble attracting tourists.” — The Bemidji Area Chamber of Commerce “I’ve never really liked Harrison Geillor... I thought he was kind of stuck up and twee, and he did horrible impressions of me! But this book is fucking funny.” — Gesse Bentura, former professional wrestler, actor, and politician
