I just finished reading Dave Eggers new book, Zeitoun, a post-Katrina novel. I picked it up after reading Timothy Egan's review in the New York Times: "Fifty years from now, when people want to know what happened to this once-great city during a shameful episode of our history, they will still be talking about a family named Zeitoun."

Read this book a you will experience a combination of heartbreak, outrage, admiration, appall and redemption. It is an elegant tale of a man who was trying to do the right thing in the aftermath of an unprecedented catastrophe.

All proceeds from the sale of this book go to the Zeitoun Foundation.
