Publisher's Description
Hurricane Story is a visual tale told in about fifty photographs and simple, understated prose. The first-person narrative, illustrated with toys and dolls, depicts Jennifer Shaw's evacuation adventures, including the dramatic birth of a son on the day Katrina made landfall, the pressures on her marriage as the couple struggles with depression and rage, and the return to New Orleans with their newest family member in time for Mardi Gras. Her depiction of toys and dolls in place of the real-life items suggests a person working through trauma. The photographs from her Holga camera, at turns humorous and haunting, contrast deftly with the prose.
