Description

In one of the most anticipated novels of the year, best-selling author Khaled Hosseini chronicles forty-five years of Afghanistan’s volatile history in a deeply moving and compelling story of family, friendship, compassion, and love. Set in Hosseini’s native Afghanistan, A Thousand Splendid Suns depicts the country’s evolving ideas about women showcasing the people and culture of a country that has been thrust into the international spotlight. Hosseini’s first novel _The Kite Runner _spent more than 100 weeks on the New York Times Best Sellers list with the film version being released later this year. In 2006, he was named a US Envoy to UNHCR, The United Nations Refugee Agency.
