"In unforgettable scenes of biblical consequence, Piazza dramatizes more devastatingly than any journalistic account the hurricane's shocking aftermath, aligning the failure to protect, rescue, and respect the people of the Lower Ninth with the sweeping brutality of war. . . . A story as old and heartbreaking as humankind itself."--Booklist (starred review)
