A Brit Abroad - When cultures collide they provide opportunities for misunderstanding, embarrassment and humour. This book is a collection of just such stories. Andrew Scowcroft writes with genuine humour, and a real love of the people and culture of India. His anecdotes take you behind the apparent chaos and mayhem that the first-time visitor often experiences in the vast, bustling city that is Mumbai. He views the disturbing poverty and stunning wealth of India with the eyes of a Westerner, but at the same time has been careful not to impose his values on their way of life. He sometimes struggles with this conflict, and in so doing we get a fresh perspective on this fascinating, vibrant and ancient culture. This book is a celebration of the people of Mumbai, their fortitude, and their sheer joy of life. If you like Bill Bryson, we think you'll like this!

Behind the Beautiful Forevers
8,40 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

A stage adaptation of Katherine Boo's National Book Award-winning study of life in a Mumbai slum India is surging with global ambition. But beyond the luxury hotels surrounding Mumbai airport lies a makeshift slum, Annawadi, full of people with plans of their own. Zehrunisa and her son Abdul aim to recycle enough rubbish to fund a proper house. Sunil, twelve and stunted, wants to eat until he's as tall as Kalu the thief. Asha seeks to steal government antipoverty funds to turn herself into a 'first-class person,' while her daughter Manju intends to become the slum's first female graduate. But their schemes are fragile; global recession threatens the garbage trade, and another slum dweller is about to make an accusation that will destroy herself and shatter the neighborhood. For Behind the Beautiful Forevers, journalist Katherine Boo spent three years in Annawadi recording the lives of its residents. From her uncompromising book, David Hare has fashioned a tumultuous play on an epic scale.
