Author Khaled Hosseini's New Novel Out Today

Khaled Hosseini, best-selling author of The Kite Runner, has published a new novel, A Thousand Splendid Suns. It was officially published today.

We heard Hosseini earlier today on Tulsa's NPR station, KWGS, where he proved to be a gracious guest. And based on the many compliments he received from listeners who called in, The Kite Runner touched a lot of American readers.

We concur. The Kite Runner is an amazing story that moved us when we read it and has stayed with us ever since. It certainly provides a glimpse of what life was like for young men growing up in Afghanistan in the 1970s.

We don't know much about A Thousand Splendid Suns, but it it's anything like his first novel, American readers will find another powerful and moving story.
