Summary
As the shadow of Hurricane Katrina looms, Simon Fortier knows how he plans to face the storm--in his long-time home in the city's Treme neighborhood, just as he did through so many storms before. But when Katrina's waters rise and the city's broken levees cause devastating floods, Simon disappears. His son Julian, a celebrated but down-on-his-luck trumpeter, rushes home to the city he left years before, to search for a father with whom he'd been on difficult terms over preparing for the hurricane. Julian's return to New Orleans brings him back in touch with figures from his past, loves and enemies both, and as his search for Simon takes him to the rural plot where Simon grew up, Julian is drawn deep into its troubles. As he comes to grips with his father's likely fate and struggles to regain his trumpet chops, Julian slowly gains a deeper, richer understanding of both his father and their shared heritage--Book jacket
