Welcome to Mulberry Lane, NJ where a quiet suburbia died as the sun descended. The reporters tell us something in the soap caused these...these changes. No one could say for sure what caused this, but this is one neighborhood that will never be the same.
When Crystal, Jennifer and Carrie begin to change from housewives into zombies they bring all their repressed angst with them. Dishes, laundry, and neglectful husbands and spiral into a fit of rage. Follow these three characters in a dark comedy where being a housewife never looked so creepy.
While this is definitely not a romance (not so far, and I shudder to think of how it would be) I couldn’t resist something with the title “Zombie Housewives”. I think it’s one of the more interesting pieces that can be construed as “Women’s Lib” writing in a while.
You have the stories and perspectives of several different women here, all of whom are repressed in one way or another by their male counterparts and all of whom wake up one day to looking absolutely terrible (as in skin-falling-off terrible) and slowly losing their ability to talk, reason and move with grace.
This is a very short but fascinating read and I know there will be more, which I will continue to keep an eye out for.
