Behind the Beautiful Forevers: Life, death, and ho&hellip by Katherine Boo
9 of 9 people found the following review helpful
This book is for the person who wants to understand why abjectly poor people live (and die too young) in a modern, globalized world that should be able to deliver education and health for all. It was hard to put down and now I'm recommending it to others. Boo brings the subject of justice and poverty alive by making a non-fiction book read like a novel. Her characters, mostly youth living, working and trying to survive in a Mumbai, India slum, are unforgettable.
