From the no. 1 bestselling author of The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns, the book that readers everywhere have been waiting for: his first novel in six years.

And the Mountains Echoed is a deeply moving new novel about how we love, how we take care of one another and how the choices we make resonate through history. A multi-generational family story revolving around brothers and sisters, it explores the ways in which they love, wound, betray, honour and sacrifice for each other.

With profound wisdom, depth, insight and compassion - and moving from Kabul, to Paris, to San Francisco, to the Greek island of Tinos - Hosseini writes about the bonds that define us and shape our lives, the ways that we help our loved ones in need and how we are often surprised by the people closest to us.

Khaled Hosseini, author of the global bestsellers The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns , has spent six years writing And the Mountains Echoed , which Bloomsbury editor-in-chief Alexandra Pringle describes as 'a big book in every sense of the word. He has told half a century of history, of a land and a people, through so many different characters, all of whom the reader loves and cares for'.

Read Caroline Baum's Review:

This book comes freighted with expectations and anticipation as the first book in six years from the author of the now classic The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns. A saga of several generations of an Afghan family it begins with the harrowing story of a brother and sister who are separated in the most tender years of childhood. By the time it reaches its conclusion the story has shifted around the globe, mirroring the diaspora of the dispossessed, and embracing those who return from overseas to reclaim what is left of their home after war has done its work. Profound sadness and loss hover over every page and the ending is heart-crunching, as you know it has to be.
