So many books. So little time.
I so loved this book when I was young.
read it. don't watch the movie. ever.
Katherine Boo's title is a real favourite of mine. This great jacket was designed by Gavin Morris—ex-Londoner now living in Delhi and working for Penguin India. The Americans went with a different cover but we felt this one worked better for us in paperback format and really captured the energy of the writing.
Katherine Boo, Behind the Beautiful Forevers
The Kite Runner is the story of Amir, a Sunni Muslim, who struggles to find his place in the world because of the aftereffects and fallout from a series of traumatic childhood events. An adult Amir opens the novel in the present-day United States with a vague reference to one of these events, and then the novel flashes back to Amir's childhood in Afghanistan.
