This is a review of Christopher Rose's book: "One Dead in the Attic" - written after Hurricane Katrina, in which people tell their story in their own words and in their own way. This reviewer feels that the way in which the victims of Katrina are allowed to share their experience is what makes "One Dead in the Attic" a unique and historical account of actual events.
From the Paper:"Christopher Rose is a newspaper reporter and through his own definition of his professional life he was inconsequential in his reporting of the goings on of glamorous people. Hurricane Katrina altered not only the course of his professional life it changed his character--the fibers of his being that made him who he was before August 29th, 2005. And me how did it change me--it made me grateful. Like all people I live in a bubble that encapsulates my family, friends and work. I watch the news from afar--it doesn't really penetrate my being unless it affects me personally. I am not from Southern Louisiana and I have never had to come together with my community to save my life. I feel I am a good representative of the people of the world that watched and made a conscious choice whether or not to help. Christopher Rose acted without thinking--he reacted to the crisis of Southern Louisiana and became one of the regions voices. Time has not quieted him--he has not walked away of forgotten the people of Southern Louisiana--he is still the people's voice. His book is filled with the voices, laughter, screams and cries of the people of Southern Louisiana."
