An interesting take on zombies.

R is a zombie, youngish, who thinks he was maybe a business guy some time. Now he lives at the airport with the other zombies and the "old ones" (very authoritarian and pseudo-religious skeletons), while the fleshy Americans live in sports stadiums turned into fortress cities. Nobody really lives in between anymore.

Anyway, the reason zombies love brains is partly because they get a taste of the memories of each one they eat--like a moment of human.

One day, R eats a young guy and gets full force memories, causing him to save the guy's human girlfriend and take her "home" to the airport. Then he falls in love.

Then something strange begins to happen.
