Tom Piazza's brisk, personal narrative captures some of the intangibles that make New Orleans special, and gets to the heart of the man-made tragedy that followed Hurricane Katrina and the spark of hope that was never fully extinguished.

"Laissez les bons temps rouler" may be NOLA's tourist-friendly motto, but Piazza's "Go with what is. Use what happens." mantra is the one it lives by.
