Abstract:

The author, a Pulitzer-winning columnist for the Times-Picayune, chronicles the horrific aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in his collection of candid essays.

"1 Dead in Attic is a collection of stories by Times-Picayune columnist Chris Rose, recounting the first harrowing year and a half of life in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. Celebrated as a local treasure and heaped with national praise, Rose provides a rollercoaster ride of observation, commentary, emotion, tragedy, and even humor--in a way that only he could find in a devastated wasteland. They are stories of the dead and the living, stories of survivors and believers, stories of hope and despair. And stories about refrigerators. 1 Dead in Attic freeze-frames New Orleans, caught between an old era and a new one, during its most desperate time, as it struggles out of the floodwaters and wills itself back to life."--p. [4] of cover.
