About This Book
Taking us from Afghanistan in the final days of the monarchy to the present, The
Kite Runner is the unforgettable, beautifully told story of the friendship
between two boys growing up in Kabul. Raised in the same household and sharing
the same wet nurse, Amir and Hassan nonetheless grow up in different worlds:
Amir is the son of a prominent and wealthy man, while Hassan , the son of Amir's
father's servant, is a Hazara, member of a shunned ethnic minority. Their
intertwined lives, and their fates, reflect the eventual tragedy of the world
around them. When the Soviets invade and Amir and his father flee the country
for a new life in California, Amir thinks that he has escaped his past. And yet
he cannot leave the memory of Hassan behind him.
"In The Kite Runner, Khaled Hosseini gives us a vivid and engaging story that reminds us how long his people have been struggling to triumph over the forces of violence -- forces that continue to threaten them even today." -- New York Times
"Stunning . . . an incisive, perceptive examination of recent Afghan history. . . It is rare that a book is at once so timely and of such high literary quality." -- Publisher's Weekly
