From the local library, as usual.

This book, subtitled “Life, death, and hope in a Mumbai undercity” is nonfiction but it reads much like a novel. That is a complement, although I had to go internet surfing to satisfy myself that I could trust the author, Katherine Boo.

I recommend it. It was unusual and compelling. For a complete review, try the links below.
