This is a fine work of non-fiction.
Addulrahman and Kathy Zeitoun lived and work in New Orleans when Katrina arrived and then the levees broke. In fact they still live there. This is their story of how they survived the country's worst natural disaster in a century. But that is only one dimension of there experience. The rest is downright Kafkaesque. Read it and you'll know.
Really, this one is worth a read. It's due in paperback in June.
