On May 21, 2013, the new novel from Khaled Hosseini
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.
"Spectacular....Hosseini's writing makes our hearts ache, our stomachs clench and our emotions reel." -USA Today
"Just as good, if not better, than Hosseini's best-selling first book, The Kite Runner." -Newsweek
"A powerful book...no frills, no nonsense, just hard, spare prose...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
