Ron Nurwisah Recommends 2 Books! Zeitoun, by Dave Eggers and The Lost City of Z by David Grann.

Zeitoun, by Dave Eggers

Published July 2009 by McSweeneys

ISBN: 978-1934781630

The Recommend:

The many tragedies and injustices springing from Hurricane Katrina are well-known, but that doesn’t take anything away from Dave Eggers’ heartbreaking story of a man destroyed by natural disaster and his government’s inhumanity.




The Lost City of Z, by David Grann

Published February 2009 by Doubleday

ISBN: 978-0385513531

Indiana Jones has nothing on real-life British explorer Percy Fawcett.

Filled with great anecdotes of bushwacking through the sweltering, bug-filled Amazon, the Lost City of Z is escapist non-fiction at its absolute best.
