about

Khaled Hosseini is one of the most widely read and beloved novelists in the world.

His novels have sold more than 38 million copies worldwide. Now, six years after A Thousand Splendid Suns debuted at #1, spending fourteen consecutive weeks at #1 and nearly a full year on the hardcover list, Hosseini returns with a book that is broader in scope and setting than anything he’s ever written before.

A multigenerational-family story revolving around brothers and sisters, it is an emotional, provocative, and unforgettable novel about how we love, how we take care of one another, and how the choices we make resonate through generations. With profound wisdom, insight and compassion, Hosseini demonstrates once again his deeply felt understanding of the bonds that define us and shape our lives—and of what it means to be human.

Editorial Reviews

"Hosseini weaves a complex pattern of interlinked lives like a finely knotted carpet. Time slips back and forward, as readers move into the lives of the characters and each character leaves a mark on our hearts. Even as it captures the sadness and regret that engulfs its characters' lives, Hosseini's storytelling is filled with love and joy and a deep sense of hope. And the Mountains Echoed is a deeply moving elegy to what might have been." - The Globe and Mail"Hosseini is generous with his descriptive flair, giving each of his characters, even the least consequential ones, heft that makes them feel three-dimensional. He can also paint everyday life so vividly that we feel the sun on our neck. If you're game for a journey, And the Mountains Echoed offers a very scenic trip." - The Toronto Star"This is a poignant novel, an intimate portrayal of desperation, courage and love that surpasses our understanding of those conditions. It takes a mature and compassionate writer to discover and translate for others the transcendence in contemporary human lives. This is why our world needs writers like Khaled Hosseini." - The Kitchener-Waterloo Record"His most ambitious novel to date, And the Mountains Echoed, proves that his massively popular first two efforts were no literary flukes. Hosseini's writing style is direct and visceral. He has the ability to practically wound readers as they read his words. He's a master of the literary twist, never allowing his reader to get too comfortable. Hosseini doesn't write like anyone else." - The Winnipeg Free Press
