And the Mountains Echoed BSY591

US$15.95

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.

1952年,阿富汗,贫穷的村庄沙德巴格。10岁的男孩阿卜杜拉和3岁的妹妹帕丽经历了一场可能永生难以挽回的骨肉分离。他们的妈妈在生帕丽的时候死于大出血,父亲萨布尔是个卖苦力的老实人,勉强支撑着艰难度日。他无力拉扯两个年幼的孩子,又给孩子们娶了个继母帕尔瓦娜。帕尔瓦娜的哥哥纳比在喀布尔一户富裕人家里做厨子兼司机,女主人妮拉一直无法生育。纳比舅舅居间牵线,帕丽被卖给了妮拉,开始了新生活。
