Khaled Hosseini's Upcoming Release



I just read the following on Bookreporter.com! I'm very excited, as I loved Hosseini's previous novels.

...it was reported that Khaled Hosseini’s new novel, And the Mountains Echoed, will release on May 21st from Riverhead Books. According to Hosseini, "My earlier novels [The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns] were at heart tales of fatherhood and motherhood. My new novel is a multi-generational family story as well, this time revolving around brothers and sisters, and the ways in which they love, wound, betray, honor, and sacrifice for each other. I am thrilled at the chance to share this book with my readers."
 Yay!!

  6. Oh dear Lesley, while I love you, and always will, I could not abide either A Thousand Splendid Suns or worse still The Kite Runner. Goodness sakes, to me they spoke of nothing but depravity, and the very worst of what manhkind can do to itself. And, I must confess, neither did anything to foster an affection for Middle Eastern culture.

    1. I wonder if it was a case of timing, Andi. I absolutely loved A Thousand Splendid Suns; probably more so than The Kite Runner.
