CD Edition


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.

'This is a beautiful book. Zeitoun is a poignant, haunting, ethereal story about New Orleans in peril...My admiration for the humanist spirit of Eggers knows no bounds.' DOUGLAS BRINKLEY, author of The Great Deluge: Hurricane Katrina, New Orleans, and the Mississippi Gulf Coast
