PLOT (from the cover): 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 POST-TALIBAN REBUILDING--THAT PUTS THE VIOLENCE, FEAR, HOPE, AND FAITH OF THIS COUNTRY IN INTIMATE, HUMAN TERMS. IT IS A TALE OF TWO GENERATIONS OF CHARACTERS BROUGHT JARRINGLY TOGETHER BY THE TRAGIC SWEEP OF WAR, WHERE PERSONAL LIVES--THE STUGGLE TO SURVIVE, RAISE A FAMILY, FIND HAPPINESS--ARE INEXTRICABLE FROM THE HISTORY PLAYING OUT AROUND THEM.
PROPELLED BY THE SAME STORYTELLING INSTINCT THAT MADE THE KITE RUNNER A BELOVED CLASSIC, A THOUSAND SPLENDID SUNS IS AT ONCE A REMARKABLE CHRONICLE OF THREE DECADES OF AFGHAN HISTORY AND A DEEPLY MOVING ACCOUNT OF FAMILY AND FRIENDSHIP. IT IS A STRIKING, HEART-WRENCHING NOVEL OF AN UNFORGIVING TIME, AN UNLIKELY FRIENDSHIP, AND AN INDESTRUCTIBLE LOVE--A STUNNING ACCOMPLISHMENT.
