Product description

Review

Eggers uses Zeitoun's eyes to report on America's reasonless post-Katrina world. Reminiscent of Gabriel Garcia Marquez's documentaries, this is a true story told with the skills of a master of fiction. Immensely readable (Independent)

Masterly. Brilliantly crafted, powerfully written and deftly reported (Guardian)

The shocking tale of a true New Orleans hero. This is narrative non-fiction at its very, very best (Herald)

Shocking (The Times)

Extraordinary, gripping (Daily Telegraph)

Terrifying (Observer)

Riveting (Vanity Fair)
