New Novel From the Author of KITE RUNNER


Khaled Hosseini told the AP today that his third novel, And the Mountains Echoed, (Penguin/Riverhead, 978-1594631764) will be a “a multi-generational family story … this time revolving around brothers and sisters, and the ways in which they love, wound, betray, honor, and sacrifice for each other.” It’s set to release on May 21st.

Hosseini’s first book, The Kite Runner, published in 2003, became a word of mouth hit after it was published in trade paperback, gradually climbing the NYT list and remaining on it for two years. His second, A Thousand Splendid Suns, released in 2007, debuted on the NYT hardcover list at #1 and remained in that spot for 16 weeks. It continued in the top ten for a total of nearly 50 weeks.
