This much-awaited follow-up to The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns is gripping and deeply satisfying. At its center is diaspora – the human diaspora, the Afghan diaspora, the family diaspora, and the personal diaspora. The book dances nimbly from setting to setting – Kabul, Paris, Silicon Valley, and the Greek Islands. It ranges from the mid-1940’s until yesterday. Each character grows and morphs with time and place. This is different from Hosseini’s earlier work – more layered and complex – but the writing has the same magic. Available May 21st.
