And the Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini | Penguin Random House CanadaHe's struck pay dirt again. The Afghan-American Khaled Hosseini's career as a novelist has not been prolific — this is only his third book in the course of 10 years — but he has made up for it in impact: sales for the first two, The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns , exceed 38 million copies worldwide.

Ten-year-old Abdullah and his beloved three-year-old sister Pari "fairy" in Farsi live with their father, stepmother and baby half-brother in the small village of Shadbagh.
