SummaryAdd a Summary
An excellent account of the days leading up to and following the devastation of New Orleans by Hurricane Katrina as seen through the eyes of a hard working and caring citizen, Abdulrahman Zeitoun. The final third of the book also offers insight into the questionable priorities of FEMA under the direction of Homeland Security as Syrian-American Zeitoun falls into the hands of police and is under suspicion of terrorism. Haunting and unforgettable.
