In Behind the Beautiful Forevers: Life, Death, and Hope in a Mumbai Undercity, Katherine Boo makes a bewildering age of global change and inequality human to readers through the story of families striving toward a better life in Annawadi, a makeshift settlement in the shadow of luxury hotels in Mumbai. As India prospers, the residents of Annawadi are electric with hope. With intelligence, humor, and deep insight into what connects people in an era of tumultuous change, Behind the Beautiful Forevers carries the reader into one of the twenty-first century’s hidden worlds—and into the hearts of families impossible to forget.
