About the Author

Khaled Hosseini is the author of The Kite Runner, which was a major film and was a Book of the Decade, chosen by The Times, Daily Telegraph and Guardian. A Thousand Splendid Suns was the Richard & Judy Best Read of the Year in 2008. And the Mountains Echoed was chosen for the Richard & Judy Summer Book Club in 2014, and readers voted it as their favourite of all the titles. Hosseini is also a Goodwill Envoy to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, the UN Refugee Agency, and the founder of The Khaled Hosseini Foundation, a not-for-profit organisation which provides humanitarian assistance to the people of Afghanistan. Sea Prayer, his fourth book, was inspired by Alan Kurdi, the three-year-old Syrian boy whose body washed upon the beach in Turkey in September 2015. Khaled Hosseini was born in Kabul, Afghanistan, and lives in northern California. khaledhosseini.com @khaledhosseini

Reviews

A gripping read and a haunting story of love, loss and betrayal. Guaranteed to move even the hardest heart * Independent *
Shattering ... devastating and inspiring * Observer *
Hosseini is a truly gifted teller of tales ... he's not afraid to pull every string in your heart to make it sing * The Times *
Rings true with tenderness and truth * Daily Mail *
A devastating, masterful and painfully honest story of a life crippled by an act of childhood and cowardice and cruelty ... It speaks the harrowing truth about the power of evil, personal and political, and intoxicates, like a high-flying kite, with the power of hope * Daily Telegraph *
Stunning and heartbreaking in its quiet intensity * Guardian *
This is one of those unforgettable stories that stay with you for years. All the great themes of literature and of life are the fabric of this extraordinary novel: love, honour, guilt, fear, redemption ... It is so powerful that for a long time after, everything I read seemed bland * Isabel Allende *
The novel that made Afghanistan the talking-point of every book group * Guardian, 50 Books that Defined the Decade *
