Product Description

When Hurricane Katrina struck New Orleans, Abdulrahman Zeitoun, a prosperous Syrian-American, chose to remain in his house. In the days after the storm he travelled the flooded streets in a canoe, passing on supplies and helping others. A week later he disappeared. Eggers' riveting book explores Zeitoun's roots, his marriage to an American who converted to Islam, and the surreal atmosphere in New Orleans during the disaster.

By Millie on 8 Feb. 2014
Superb book. Well read. I found this fascinating. I had heard on the news about some of what happened during and after hurricane Katrina but this really opens the eyes to it from an individual perspective. The balance of information about Zeitoun and his wife's past complemented the book without detracting from it. Would definitely recommend it.
