Khaled Hosseini

Khaled Hosseini, author of The Kite Runner, was born on 4 March, 1965 in Kabul, Afghanistan. All three of his published books are set (or at least, partly) in his home country. Moving around a lot in his youth, Khaled lived in Iran, Paris and Afghanistan before his family eventually settled in California, where he still lives to this day.

After graduating from university, Khaled Hosseini worked as a doctor up until his debut novel, The Kite Runner, was published in 2003. Having spent 101 weeks in the New York Times Bestseller list, it was adapted into a successful film by Quantum of Solace and Monster's Ball director Marc Forster in 2007. Khaled followed the success of his debut up with 2007's A Thousand Splendid Suns and 2013's And the Mountains Echoed.

They fell from the sky like shooting stars with brilliant, rippling tails, showering the neighbourhood. Amir and Hassan grow up together in Kabul. Amir in the beautiful house his father built, filled with marble, gold, tapestries and mosaics; Hassan in the modest mud hut in the servants' quarters. The two are inseparable, and when twelve-year-old Amir is desperate to win the local kite-fighting tournament, his loyal friend promises to help him. But neither boy can predict what will happen to Hassan that afternoon - as the kites soar over the city - and how it will change their lives forever.

    A deeply moving, gorgeously illustrated short work of fiction for people of all ages from the international bestselling author of The Kite Runner, brought to life by Dan Williams's beautiful illustrations On a moonlit beach a father cradles his sleeping son as they wait for dawn to break and a boat to arrive. He speaks to his boy of the long summers of his childhood, recalling his grandfather's house in Syria, the stirring of olive trees in the breeze, the bleating of his grandmother's goat, the clanking of her cooking pots. And he remembers, too, the bustling city of Homs with its crowded lanes, its mosque and grand souk, in the days before the sky spat bombs and they had to flee. When the sun rises they and those around them will gather their possessions and embark on a perilous sea journey in search of a new home.
