Overview

1 Dead in Attic is a collection of stories by Times-Picayune columnist Chris Rose, recounting the first four harrowing months of life in New Orleans after Katrina.

It is a roller coaster ride of observations, commentary, emotions, tragedy and even humor - in a way that only Rose could find in a devastated wasteland.

They are stories of the dead and the living, stories of survivors and believers, stories of hope and despair. And stories about refrigerators.

With photographs by British photojournalist Charlie Varley, 1 Dead in Attic freeze frames New Orleans caught between an old era and a new, New Orleans in its most desperate time, as it struggled out of floodwaters and willed itself back to life in the autumn and early winter of 2005.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Rose, a columnist for the Times-Picayune, has collected and self-published the pieces he wrote for the newspaper in the aftermath of Katrina, from August 29, 2005, until January 1, 2006. He has arranged them here thematically, without reference to the original column dates, but don't let that or the book's availability apparently only through his web site (www.chrisrosebooks.com) dissuade you from adding this to your collection. It is primary source material and said to be the best-selling Katrina book in New Orleans. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

    poignant and accurate

    It is difficult for me to discuss the events in and surrounding this book. That is why i am so glad Chris Rose is around to tell the world how I feel. If you love New Orleans... if you love the juxtaposition between seemingly unrelated objects, if you love to see the beauty in the mundane, if you look around you and want to laugh and cry at the tragic beauty of the world... you will love this book.

    Now I remember why I'm still here....

    I was doubting why we still live here... After reading this book I remember why my family still does. Those who continually ask us 'why' either you have never visited New Orleans or you are used to quitting.... Proud to be home...

    Couldn't put this one down.

    I picked this one up at the airport in New Orleans. After coming back to visit the area a year later and seeing everything that still needs to be done. You can still see some of these images that Chris Rose describes in this book. For those of us not living there then or now it really gives you a perspective of just how dire things really were.

    Great Writing that Captures NOLA's True Spirit

    I purchased this book in Metarie when I was down in NOLA cooking for volunteers. It really captures the essence of the soul of New Orleans and puts very succinctly how everyone we met felt about their city, their government, and their neighbors. A must read for everyone with a heart!

    Gary - A New Orleans Native

    Mr. Rose truly tells the story of how things were here after 'The Thing'. He managed to pull more tears out of me, when I thought there were none left.

    The Truth Brilliantly Told

    For those who think it was just an interesting interlude on CNN, read this book. Understand this city. Care. We have to as a nation, because our government clearly does not. The scope of the damage is unimaginable. This book helps you to grasp the spirit of one of the most incredible cities in America. We have to protect her. We must not forget that she still needs our help.

    Second only to an actual visit

    I just got back from a mission trip rebuilding houses in Slidell and hearing the stories of friends in New Orleans. This book captures the experience and I have purchased one for every member of my mission team.

    AWESOME-TRUE SENTIMENTS OF KATRINA SURVIVORS

    These writings portray such an accurate insight into the lives of those 'making the best of it' in New Orleans and living with the aftermath of Katrina. Mixed with humor, Chris Rose relates the challenges, heartbreak,sadness and the surviving spirit of New Orleans and its people that continues to prevail and make it so very special.
