The award-winning, best-selling graphic nonfiction masterpiece depicts the lives of seven New Orleanians before, during, and just after Hurricane Katrina. Denise, a counselor and social worker, and a sixth-generation New Orleanian; “The Doctor,” a proud fixture of the French Quarter; Abbas and Darnell, two friends who face the storm from Abbas’ family-run market; Kwame, a pastor’s son; and the couple Leo and Michelle, who both grew up in the city. Each is forced to confront the same wrenching decision - whether to stay or to flee.
