Zone One by Colson Whitehead

Another zombie tale. Set in the post-apocalypse just as the humans begin re-establishing themselves, the story follows one man – nicknamed Mark Spitz – as he works with a team clearing lower Manhattan of the remaining (supposedly) zombies. Spitz provides the back story in bits and pieces through his own recollections as he carries out his job over the three-day period covered by the book. True to the genre, there’s plenty of gore. But the real story revolves around Spitz’s inner struggle to survive. Enjoyable and haunting. Loved it.

Also, I just ordered this shirt:
