Behind the Beautiful Forevers: Life, Death, and Hope in a Mumbai Undercity by Katherine Boo
Behind the Beautiful Forevers: Life, Death, and Hope in a Mumbai Undercity

MICHAEL CULLINAN, January 30, 2013

Behind the Beautiful Forevers was a deeply affecting book for me. It was uncomfortable, unsettling. Embracing the world Boo describes and the lives of her characters was inevitable for me. It left me emotionally drained and disturbed. It was an unforgettable experience. In spite of the inevitable pain of the characters, I could not stop reading. The images Boo created will haunt me. The eyes of the street people I walk by outside of Powell's are not the same anymore.
