Aubrey (korrick) | 2004 comments Behind the Beautiful Forevers, Katherine Boo, 2012, India (United States), NONFICTION

"This...has all the majestic sweep, intimate characterizations and deep meaning of the best novels.... Boo has drawn the most marvelous of portraits, and while the grimness of the subject matter is quite frequently horrifying, this is also a work of hope, and the hope does shine through, even when one is most terrorized by what life will next deal up for her cast of characters...."
