McNulty fled New Orleans ahead of Hurricane Katrina, and was one of the first to move back in. This book chronicles his survival in the city, without utilities, but with the rebel spirit typical of NOLA denizens. It's not just about the storm...it's about the city and its unique culture, from the parties that spring up in defiance of the curfew to the street art people create from the detritus of the hurricane. When Epiphany, or Twelfth Night, comes after the first post-Katrina Christmas, Carnival season officially begins and New Orleans begins to put its party clothes on again.
