On the library shelves
For three years Katherine Boo immersed herself in the lives of the slum dwellers who scrabble an existence at the edge of the Mumbai International Airport. She excels in telling the story of the individuals who are the face of one of the world's great, unequal cities. The New York Times says it is a book where 'truth surpasses fiction'.
