At the last meeting of The Sweetness we decided that perhaps a stroll down non-fiction lane was in order. We're going pretty far down the lane, all the way into the undercity.
Katherine Boo's Behind the Beautiful Forevers: Life, Death, and Hope in a Mumbai Undercity was on most of the Top 10 lists for 2012 and it received praise from everyone and their mother. Although this book isn't fiction, some parts of it probably read like fiction. What's more, hopefully this book will spur a conversation that goes past the words on the page.
Thanks to those who sent me recommendations! I've added them to the list of prospects for future meetings!
Hope to see you there!
