A harrowing, deeply affecting account of one family’s struggle to survive Hurricane Katrina and its aftermath. In August 2005, New Orleans business owners Abdulrahman and Kathy Zeitoun tried to make their way home through the flood waters after being evacuated from Hurricane Katrina. But unlike most of the city’s residents, they didn’t make it back. Their odyssey in search of safety for their children would be a story of endurance and kindness amid terrible circumstances. It also revealed a nation unprepared for the disaster that was about to unfold before them.

Kathy and Abdulrahman Zeitoun were living the American dream. Then, on the worst day of their lives, everything changed. The storm has passed, and as the water recedes, Kathy finds herself stranded in a house on dry land with no way to evacuate New Orleans. Meanwhile, Abdulrahman makes his way home by canoe and rowboat—and encounters chaos and dangers that make it impossible for him to return to Kathy’s side unless he stays behind to save one last person from drowning. As this couple struggles to find each other in a city besieged by floodwaters and civil unrest, artist Dave Eggers weaves their survival story with those of several others who worked to endure over the following days and weeks.

Abdulrahman and Kathy Zeitoun run a house-painting business in New Orleans. In August of 2005, as Hurricane Katrina approached, Kathy evacuated with their four young children, leaving Zeitoun to watch over the company and their home. But when police stop him under suspicion of looting, an odyssey begins five days trapped on their roof as floodwaters rise; four months imprisoned at Camp Greyhound, Astrodome, and a corrections facility; two years in federal prison. In a riveting work of contemporary reportage that is also an intimate portrait of a marriage under extreme adversity,
