A Thousand Splendid Suns

Thus far in the history of the Readers Roundtable, the book Kite Runner seems to be the only unanimous favorite. Now, author Khaled Hossieni has a new book coming out on May 22, called A Thousand Splendid Suns. (The library has copies on order and you can place a hold now.)

Find out more about the book on Hossieni's website:
A Thousand Splendid Suns is a breathtaking story set against the volatile events of Afghanistan’s last thirty years—from the Soviet invasion to the reign of the Taliban to the post-Taliban rebuilding—that puts the violence, fear, hope, and faith of this country in intimate, human terms. Link to full book description.

You can also see an interview with the Hossieni on Amazon.com.
