A Thousand Splendid Suns
Translated from English by Sopio Jobava
The second novel by the bestselling
author Khalen Hosseini is dedicated to Afghan women. It describes the daily life of women deprived of their rights, the family abuse, Taliban brutality, unbearable life of disabled people and the country which is constantly shelled but still stands strong like the walls of the Shahr-e-Zohak fortress. Women here grow flowers in the bomb shells, aspire education and freedom.
This is a heartbreaking story of two women, who find the strength in themselves to fight for survival and triumph.
