This deluxe illustrated edition of A Thousand Splendid Suns is filled with striking and memorable photographs that bring Khaled Hosseini's compelling story to life. Since its publication in 2007, "A Thousand Splendid Suns" has shipped more than three million copies. The bestselling adult novel of 2007, it spent fifteen weeks at #1 on the "New York Times" bestseller list and remained on the list for an impressive forty-nine weeks. Propelled by the same superb instinct for storytelling that made "The Kite Runner" a beloved classic, "A Thousand Splendid Suns" is at once an incredible chronicle of thirty years of Afghan history and a deeply moving story of family, friendship, faith, and the salvation to be found in love.
Now, in this lavishly designed edition of the novel, the narrative is enhanced by expressive photos that capture the people and culture of the region in vivid detail and reflect the book's powerful themes, so apt for our times: the passionate search for family, home, acceptance, a healthy society, and a promising future-regardless of the obstacles. Together with "The Kite Runner" Illustrated Edition, the illustrated A Thousand Splendid Suns creates a beautiful matched set.
