I’ve just started to read Behind the Beautiful Forevers by Katherine Boo (2012) and it has already turned my worldview upside down. I thought I knew poverty existed. I knew nothing. I have a feeling I’ll be writing more as I continue to experience this most moving piece of nonfiction, but am including a few links below to tide over your curiosity in the meantime.

  • Official site for the book, including discussion guide and author interview
  • An interview with Katherine Boo from 2014
  • A two-minute video from Random House of Annawadi, the Mumbai slum featured in the book
