In this brilliant, breathtaking book by Pulitzer Prize winner Katherine Boo, a bewildering age of global change and inequality is made human through the dramatic story of families striving toward a better life in Annawadi, a makeshift settlement in the shadow of luxury hotels near the Mumbai airport. As India starts to prosper, the residents of Annawadi are electric with hope. Abdul, an enterprising teenager, sees “a fortune beyond counting” in the recyclable garbage that richer people throw away. Meanwhile Asha, a woman of formidable ambition, has identified a shadier route to the middle class. With a little luck, her beautiful daughter, Annawadi’s “most-­everything girl,­” might become its first female college graduate. And even the poorest children, like the young thief Kalu, feel themselves inching closer to their dreams. But then Abdul is falsely accused in a shocking tragedy; terror and global recession rock the city; and suppressed tensions over religion, caste, sex, power, . . .

In this brilliantly written, fast-­paced book, based on three years of uncompromising reporting, a bewildering age of global change and inequality is made human. Annawadi is a makeshift settlement in the shadow of luxury hotels near the Mumbai airport, and as India starts to prosper, Annawadians are electric with hope. Abdul, a reflective and enterprising Muslim teenager, sees “a fortune beyond counting” in the recyclable garbage that richer people throw away. Asha, a woman of formidable wit and deep scars from a childhood in rural poverty, has identified an alternate route to the middle class: political corruption. With a little luck, her sensitive, beautiful daughter—Annawadi’s “most-­everything girl”—will soon become its first female college graduate. And even the poorest Annawadians, like Kalu, a fifteen-­year-­old scrap-­metal thief, believe themselves inching closer to the good lives and good times they call “the full enjoy.­” But then Abdul the garbage sorter is falsely accused . . .

Amazon.­com ReviewAmazon Best Books of the Month, February 2012: Katherine Boo spent three years among the residents of the Annawadi slum, a sprawling, cockeyed settlement of more than 300 tin-­roof huts and shacks in the shadow of Mumbai's International Airport. From within this "sumpy plug of slum,­" Boo unearths stories both tragic and poignant--­about residents' efforts to raise families, earn a living, or simply survive. These unforgettable characters all nurture far-­fetched dreams of a better life. As one boy tells his brother: "Everything around us is roses. And we're like the st in between.­" A New Yorker writer and recipient of a Pulitzer Prize and a MacArthur "Genius" grant, Boo writes superbly, and the depth and courage of her reporting from this hidden world is astonishing. At times, it's hard to believe this is nonfiction. --­Neal ThompsonReview“[An] exquisitely accomplished first book. Novelists dream of defining characters this swiftly and beautifully, but Ms. Boo is not . . .

Annawadi is built on garbage dumps at the edge of Mumbai Airport, in the shadow of shining new luxury hotels. Its residents are scavengers, construction workers and economic migrants, all of them living in squalor in the hope that a small part of India's booming future will eventually be theirs. But when a murder rocks the slum community and global recession shocks the city, suppressed tensions over religion, caste, sex, power, and economic envy begin to turn brutal. As Boo gets to know those who dwell at Mumbai's margins, she evokes an extraordinarily vivid and vigorous group of individuals flourishing against the odds amid the complications, corruptions and gross inequalities of the new India.
