Not far from the Mumbai airport with its nearby luxury hotels sits Annawadi, a shadowy slum that tourist bureaus would prefer you never see. Teeming with life and riddled by corruption, this makeshift settlement is home to thousands of stories of hope and heartbreak. Award-winning New Yorker journalist Katherine Boo spent three years researching and chronicling the often fast-changing fortunes of teenage scavengers and impoverished mothers hell-bent on saving their daughters. Her Behind the Beautiful Forevers possesses the poignancy of Slumdog Millionaires and a density and nuance all its own. A Discover Great New Writers selection and a National Book Award winner! Now in trade paperback and NOOK Book.
