This week I read Zeitoun by Dave Eggers. It's a non-fiction account of Abdulrahman Zeitoun who decided to stay in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina in order to protect his painting business and real estate properties. He uses a small canoe to feed dogs that have been left behind when their owners fled and to rescue people after their homes are flooded. However, he is arrested and accused of being a terrorist because of his race and religion and is held without bond, not allowed a lawyer, or even a phone call for three months. The book is eye-opening as a first-person account of the tragedy of Katrina.
