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 California. @khaledhosseini


A gripping read and a haunting story of love, loss and betrayal. Guaranteed to move even the hardest heart
Shattering . devastating and inspiring
Hosseini is a truly gifted teller of tales . he's not afraid to pull every string in your heart to make it sing
Rings true with tenderness and truth
A devastating, masterful and painfully honest story of a life crippled by an act of childhood and cowardice and cruelty . It speaks the harrowing truth about the power of evil, personal and political, and intoxicates, like a high-flying kite, with the power of hope
Stunning and heartbreaking in its quiet intensity
This is one of those unforgettable stories that stay with you for years. All the great themes of literature and of life are the fabric of this extraordinary novel: love, honour, guilt, fear, redemption . It is so powerful that for a long time after, everything I read seemed bland
The novel that made Afghanistan the talking-point of every book group
