Críticas:

Eggers uses Zeitoun's eyes to report on America's reasonless post-Katrina world. Reminiscent of Gabriel Garcia Marquez's documentaries, this is a true story told with the skills of a master of fiction. Immensely readable ( Independent)

Masterly. Brilliantly crafted, powerfully written and deftly reported ( Guardian)

The shocking tale of a true New Orleans hero. This is narrative non-fiction at its very, very best ( Herald)

Shocking ( The Times)

Extraordinary, gripping ( Daily Telegraph)

Terrifying ( Observer)

Riveting ( Vanity Fair)

Reseña del editor:

Dave Eggers's Zeitoun is the winner of the American Book Award and the LA Times Book Award

In August 2005, as Hurricane Katrina blew in, the city of New Orleans has been abandoned by most citizens. But resident Abdulrahman Zeitoun, though his wife and family had gone, refused to leave. For days he traversed an apocalyptic landscape of flooded streets by canoe. But eventually he came to the attention of those 'guarding' this drowned city. Only then did Zeitoun's nightmare really begin.

Zeitoun is the powerful, ultimately uplifting true story of one man's courage when confronted with an awesome force of nature followed by more troubling human oppression.

'Eggers uses Zeitoun's eyes to report on America's reasonless post-Katrina world, Reminiscent of Gabriel Garcia Márquez's documentaries, this is a true story told with the skills of a master of fiction. Immensely readable' Independent

'Masterly. Brilliantly crafted, powerfully written and deftly reported' Guardian

'The stuff of great narrative non-fiction. Fifty years from now, when people want to know what happened to this once-great city, they will be talking about a family named Zeitoun' The New York Times Book Review

Award-winning author Dave Eggers is the editor and founder of American literary journal McSweeney's and the founder of 826 Valencia, a non-profit literacy centre for disadvantaged young people in San Francisco.
