And the mountains echoed a novel

An unforgettable novel about finding a lost piece of yourself in someone else. Khaled Hosseini, the #1 New York Times'bestselling author of The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns, has written a new novel about how we love, how we take care of one another, and how the choices we make resonate through generations. In this tale revolving around not just parents and children but brothers and sisters, cousins and caretakers, Hosseini explores the many ways in which families nurture, wound, betray, honor, and sacrifice for one another; and how often we are surprised by the actions of those closest to us, at the times that matter most. Following its characters and the ramifications of their lives and choices and loves around the globe'from Kabul to Paris to San Francisco to the Greek island of Tinos'the story expands gradually outward, becoming more emotionally complex and powerful with each turning page.

  • "A novel about how people love, how they take care of each other, and how choices made today can resonate through future generations.

  • "So, then. You want a story and I will tell you one...Afghanistan, 1952. Abdullah and his sister Pari live with their father and stepmother in the small village of Shadbagh. Their father, Saboor, is constantly in search of work and they struggle together through poverty and brutal winters. To Abdullah, Pari - as beautiful and sweet-natured as the fairy for which she was named - is everything. More like a parent than a brother, Abdullah will do anything for her, even trading his only pair of shoes for a feather for her treasured collection. Each night they sleep together in their cot, their heads touching, their limbs tangled. One day the siblings journey across the desert to Kabul with their father. Pari and Abdullah have no sense of the fate that awaits them there, for the event which unfolds will tear their lives apart; sometimes a finger must be cut to save the hand. Crossing generations and continents, moving from Kabul, to Paris, to San Francisco, to the Greek island of Tinos, with profound wisdom, depth, insight and compassion, Khaled Hosseini writes about the bonds that define us and shape our lives, the ways in which we help our loved ones in need, how the choices we make resonate through history and how we are often surprised by the people closest to us."

  • ""La decisión de una humilde familia campesina de dar una hija en adopción a un matrimonio adinerado es el fundamento sobre el que Khaled Hosseini -- autor de las inolvidables Cometas en el cielo y Mil soles espléndidos -- ha tejido este formidable tapiz en el que se entrelazan los distinos de varias generaciones y se exploran las infinitas formas en que el amor, el valor, la traición y el sacrificio desempeñan un papel determinante en las vidas de las personas. La historia arranca en una remota y desolada aldea de Afganistán, donde Sabur y su segunda mujer se enfrentan en condiciones precarias a la llegada de otro invierno implacable. Abdulá, el hijo mayor, de diez años, ha cuidado de su hermana Pari desde que era pequeña, y ahora ambos escuchan cautivados la triste historia que les relata su padre antes de acostarlos, la víspera de iniciar un largo viaje que los conducirá hasta Kabul. Allí, en las bulliciosas calles de la capital, dará comienzo este fascinante itinerario que guiará al lector desde el otoño de 1952 hasta el presente, de Kabul a París, desde la isla griega de Tinos hasta San Francisco."--Page 4 of cover."
  • "L'événement éditorial de l'année ! Après six ans d'attente, l'auteur-culte Khaled Hosseini nous revient avec une oeuvre passionnante, d'une ampleur et d'une intensité dramatique impressionnantes. Tour à tour déchirant, émouvant, provocant, un roman-fleuve sur l'amour, la mort, le sacrifice, le pardon, la rédemption, sur ces choix qui nous façonnent et dont l'écho continue de résonner dans nos vies. Dans le village de Shadbagh, Abdullah, dix ans, veille sur sa petite soeur Pari, trois ans. Entre les deux enfants, le lien est indéfectible, un amour si fort qu'il leur permet de supporter la disparition de leur mère, les absences de leur père en quête désespérée d'un travail et ces jours où la faim les tenaille. Mais un événement va venir distendre ce lien, un choix terrible qui modifiera à jamais le destin des deux jeunes vies, et de bien d'autres encore...Des années cinquante à nos jours, d'une petite cahute dans la campagne afghane aux demeures cossues de Kaboul, en passant par le Paris bohème des seventies et le San Francisco clinquant des années quatre-vingt, Hosseini le conteur nous emmène dans un voyage bouleversant, une flamboyante épopée à travers les grands drames de l'Histoire."
