Audience: General/trade. From Pulitzer Prize-winner Boo comes a landmark work of narrative nonfiction that tells the dramatic and sometimes heartbreaking story of families striving toward a better life in one of the 21st century's great, unequal cities.
Behind the beautiful forevers is presented as a story, but it turns out to be all true, even the names, as told to reporter Katherine Boo. It is a shocking description of the lives of residents of Annawadi, a slum by a sewage lake near the airport, surrounded by luxury hotels and billboards advertising floor tiles said to be ?beautiful forever?.
The main character, Adbul, deals in recyclable materials, and tries to resist the corruption around him. Hospital surgeons demand under-the-table money, government officials and bank executives all get a cut in implementing government ?anti-poverty? schemes, and in the justice system ?innocence and guilt could be bought and sold like a kilo of polyurethane bags?.
What does this do to people?s capacity for moral action? As the author concludes, ?the astonishment is that some people are good?.
