Behind the Beautiful Forevers: Life, Death, and Hope in a Mumbai Undercity by Katherine BooDirections & Maps
Pulitzer-prize winning writer Katherine Boo describes everyday life in the Annawadi slum located near the Mumbai airport. Shifting perspectives among locals such as Abdul, a young trash collector, the politically corrupt Asha, and her sensitive and educated daughter, this gritty chronicle shows the stark contrast between the poor and the rich, and prompts thought about globalism, poverty, violence, and humanity.
