"Intelligent, compassionate and unsettling."â€”The New York Times
â€śDevlin twists and breaks the typical zombie narrative without spoiling one of the cleverest conceits in recent horror. Suffice to say that the author takes a scalpel to the post-truth era.â€ťâ€”Esquire
In the tradition of Mira Grant and Stephen Graham Jones, Malcolm Devlinâ€™s And Then I Woke Up is a creepy, layered, literary story about false narratives and their ability to divide us.
In a world reeling from an unusual plague, monsters lurk in the streets while terrified survivors arm themselves and roam the countryside in packs. Or perhaps something very different is happening. When a disease affects how reality is perceived, itâ€™s hard to be certain of anythingâ€¦
Spence is one of the â€ścuredâ€ť living at the Ironside rehabilitation facility. Haunted by guilt, he refuses to face the changed world until a new inmate challenges him to help her find her old crew. But if he canâ€™t tell the truth from the lies, how will he know if he has earned the redemption he dreams of? How will he know he hasnâ€™t just made things worse?
