From the no. 1 bestselling author of The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns.
And the Mountains Echoed is a deeply moving novel about how we love, how we take care of one another and how the choices we make resonate through history. A multi-generational family story revolving around brothers and sisters, it explores the ways in which they love, wound, betray, honour and sacrifice for each other.
With profound wisdom, depth, insight and compassion - and moving from Kabul, to Paris, to San Francisco, to the Greek island of Tinos - Hosseini writes about the bonds that define us and shape our lives, the ways that we help our loved ones in need and how we are often surprised by the people closest to us.
Khaled Hosseini, author of the global bestsellers The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns, spent six years writing And the Mountains Echoed, which Bloomsbury editor-in-chief Alexandra Pringle describes as "a big book in every sense of the word. He has told half a century of history, of a land and a people, through so many different characters, all of whom the reader loves and cares for".
