I wondered if anyone else had read this book? It's by a journalist, Katherine Boo, and it's about the lives of people living in a Mumbai Slum. It's terrific - really well-researched and moving, and gives you a feel for what life is like for people at the bottom of the heap in India. Despite being an incredibly sad story, it's completely unsentimental. Anyway, if you have read it, please tell me what you think, and if you haven't, I really want to recommend it. I've been lucky enough to read lots of very good non-fiction books this year but this is one of the best.
