Katherine Boo

Listen to Katherine Boo

India observers, devotees of immersion journalism and lovers of good writing agree: New Yorker staffer Katherine Boo’s account of life in a Mumbai slum is the best book about India in decades. The Pulitzer Prize winner and author of Behind the Beautiful Forevers - an account of the daily life of the Annawadi slum - discusses the power of journalistic truth, poverty and trust with the Wheeler Centre’s senior writer/editor Jo Case.
