An unforgettable novel about finding a lost piece of yourself in someone else.
Khaled Hosseini, the #1 "New York Times"-bestselling author of "The Kite Runner "and "A Thousand Splendid Suns," has written a new novel about how we love, how we take care of one another, and how the choices we make resonate through generations. In this tale revolving around not just parents and children but brothers and sisters, cousins and caretakers, Hosseini explores the many ways in which families nurture, wound, betray, honor, and sacrifice for one another; and how often we are surprised by the actions of those closest to us, at the times that matter most. Following its characters and the ramifications of their lives and choices and loves around the globe--from Kabul to Paris to San Francisco to the Greek island of Tinos--the story expands gradually outward, becoming more emotionally complex and powerful with each turning page.
Praise for "The Kite Runner" "A powerful book . . . an intimate account of family and friendship, betrayal and salvation that requires no atlas or translation to engage and enlighten us."--"The Washington Post Book World" "This powerful first novel . . . tells a story of fierce cruelty and fierce yet redeeming love. . . . Hosseini gives us a vivid and engaging story that reminds us how long his people have been struggling to triumph over the forces of violence--forces that continue to threaten them even today."--"The New York Times Book Review" "A marvelous first novel . . . an incredible story of the culture. It's an old-fashioned kind of novel that really sweeps you away."--"San Francisco"" Chronicle"Praise for "A Thousand Splendid Suns" "Spectacular . . . Hosseini's writing makes our hearts ache, our stomachs clench and our emotions reel."--"USA"" Today" "Just as good as, if not better than, Hosseini's best-selling first book, " The Kite Runner"."--"Newsweek" "Hosseini has the storytelling gift."--"Los Angeles"" Times" "[Love] is the emotion--subterranean, powerful, beautiful, illicit, and infinitely patient--that suffuses the pages."--"O: The Oprah Magazine"
