In Hosseini's unforgettable debut novel, The Kite Runner,

twelve-year-old Amir is desperate to win the local kite-fighting

tournament and his loyal friend Hassan promises to help him. But neither

of the boys can foresee what will happen to Hassan that afternoon, an

event that is to shatter their lives. After the Russians invade and the

family is forced to flee to America, Amir realises that one day he must

return to an Afghanistan under Taliban rule to find the one thing that

his new world cannot grant him: redemption.


In his second novel, A Thousand Splendid Suns, Hosseini

begins his story with Mariam, who is only fifteen when she is sent to

Kabul to marry Rasheed. Nearly two decades later, a friendship grows

between Mariam and a local teenager, Laila, as strong as the ties

between mother and daughter. When the Taliban take over, life becomes a

desperate struggle against starvation, brutality and fear. Yet love can

move a person to act in unexpected ways, and lead them to overcome the

most daunting obstacles with a startling heroism.
