Passage

Posted by Tracy Poff on August 31, 2011

Brett is working as an English teacher in Vanuatu when the news comes of the plague in America. His Bislama isn’t so good, but the word is that in America, people are eating one another.

Passage” by Lavie Tidhar is a slice of life, with a (distant, unseen) zombie plague. At a little over a thousand words, there’s not much time for plot or development–we just see a series of glimpses into Brett’s life as he deals with his changing situation.

It’s a little unsatisfying, but the message is clear: even with a zombie apocalypse in America, life goes on. After all, what can you do?
