    i am lost in the Behind the Beautiful Forevers by Katherine Boo and cannot put it down. i cannot tell you how i found this book but i put it on hold at the library. it is likely on a list of best somethings.

    although it is quote unquote a narrative nonfiction, it feels more like a novel and is the story of a family who literally live on a garbage dump and is trying to survive by collecting and selling garbage

    reading this makes me feel horrified at the inequality we have here on earth. a propos for thanksgiving.

    •  It is a painful book to read (2+ / 0-)

      I can't help thinking some truths were merged to make the story--but alas I think there is a lot of truth behind it.
