The library recently acquired a copy of Khaled Hosseini's newest work, And the Mountains Echoed. Following on the success of his first two novels, this work examines the complexities of sibling relationships in Afghanistan and beyond. The central characters, Abdullah and his sister Pari, are separated during childhood when their father allows Pari to be adopted by a wealthy family. Eventually Pari ends up in Paris and Abdullah moves to California, stretching the narrative across three continents. As decades go by, Hosseini traces the lives of Abdullah, Pari, and their families, along with other sibling pairs that are woven into the narrative. You can find our copy of this book on the third floor of the library, along with The Kite Runner, A Thousand Splendid Suns, and other literary titles.
