|This incisive and opinionated memoir presents Harris's observations of human behavior at its best and at its worst and also serves as an eloquent tribute to 'the incredible citizens of New Orleans.' |
Throughout the pages of Diary From The Dome, author Paul Harris takes the reader on a vicarious journey back to a controversial time when one would find it nearly impossible to believe in America's status as the world's foremost superpower. Over the past seven years, countless stories of the horrendous aftermath of Hurricane Katrina have been shared in all forms of media, but relatively few pack the powerful, personalized punch that Harris delivers in his journalized memoir. From Ground Zero itself, Harris bore personal witness to the destructive impact of the calamitous storm, as well as the pain, despair, and desperation felt by all those left in its wake. In no uncertain terms, Harris pulls no punches in telling the real stories of those affected by one of the worst natural disasters in American history - even going so far as to call the mainstream media to task for its more often than not blatant misrepresentations of the events that he not only observed - but struggled to lived through.
Raw, real, and refreshingly honest, Diary From The Dome is required reading for anyone wanting to learn the real story behind the natural and human tragedy that was Hurricane Katrina. An absolute must-read. Be warned that this is personal memoir and political treatise so some right-wing Bush supporters may not wish to purchase.
