We now have autographed copies of Zeitoun, Dave Eggers' gripping
and amazing story about the disappearance of a man out helping his neighbors
during the New Orleans floods. Eggers spent three years researching and writing his riveting
nonfiction book, exploring Abdulrahman Zeitoun's roots in Syria, his marriage
to Kathy - an American who converted to Islam - and their children, as well as the surreal atmosphere (in New Orleans and the United States generally) in which what happened to Zeitoun was possible.
"This is a beautiful book...a poignant, haunting, ethereal story about
New Orleans in peril. Eggers has bottled up the feeling of post-Katrina despair
better than anyone else. This is a simple story with a lingering radiance. 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
