Fresh off of the Canadian printing presses and onto the shelves here at 211 is Zeitoun. I've considered halting all other reading to get through this one ASAP. Zeitoun is the story of Abdulrahman Zeitoun, a Syrian-American in the epoch of Hurricane Katrina. Eggers is the Author of many great books, among them: You Shall Know Our Velocity, A Heartbreaking Work Of A Staggering Genius and What Is The What. In addition to writing books; Eggers is the founder of Mcsweeney's publishing.
