Notă biografică

Khaled Hosseini is the author of The Kite Runner, which was a major film and was a Book of the Decade, chosen by The Times, Daily Telegraph and Guardian. A Thousand Splendid Suns was the Richard & Judy Best Read of the Year in 2008. And the Mountains Echoed was chosen for the Richard & Judy Summer Book Club in 2014, and readers voted it as their favourite of all the titles. Hosseini is also a Goodwill Envoy to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, the UN Refugee Agency, and the founder of The Khaled Hosseini Foundation, a not-for-profit organisation which provides humanitarian assistance to the people of Afghanistan. Sea Prayer, his fourth book, was inspired by Alan Kurdi, the three-year-old Syrian boy whose body washed upon the beach in Turkey in September 2015. Khaled Hosseini was born in Kabul, Afghanistan, and lives in northern @khaledhosseini


In case you're wondering whether A Thousand Splendid Suns is as good as The Kite Runner, here's the answer: No. It's better
A masterful narrative . He is a storyteller of dizzying power
Hosseini has that rare thing, a Dickensian knack for storytelling
A gripping tale . It is, too a powerful portrait of female suffering and endurance under the Taliban
A beautifully crafted and disturbing story . As unforgettable as The Kite Runner, this novel places us in Afghanistan with an open heart
A heartfelt saga that encompasses romance and melodrama, personal and political intrigue, the onslaught of war and dispossession
If he cut his teeth by writing about his countrymen, it is the plight of Afghanistan's women that has brought him to realise his full powers as a novelist
A Thousand Splendid Suns has all the particularity of a novel and all the force of a fable . It reads, in many ways, like an old-fashioned romance adventure
Hosseini has done it again . A Thousand Splendid Suns is a triumph. In Khaled Hosseini, Afghanistan has at last found a voice


Descriere de la o altă ediție sau format:
With heart-wrenching power and suspense, the bestselling author of "The Kite Runner" shows how a woman's love for her family can move her to shocking and heroic acts of self-sacrifice, and that in the end it is love, or even the memory of love, that is often the key to survival.
