"The Bookseller of Kabul" by Asne Seierstad, translated by Ingrid Christopher: "The Narrative Nonfiction Book Club had a lot to discuss with this international bestseller!" Faith
For more than 20 years, Sultan Khan has defied the authorities--whether Communist or Taliban--to supply books to the people of Kabul. He has been arrested, interrogated, and imprisoned, and has watched illiterate Taliban soldiers burn piles of his books in the street. Yet he had persisted in his passion for books, shedding light in one of the world's darkest places. This is a rare look at contemporary life under Islam.

The namesake - Jhumpa Lahiri - Google Books Jhumpa Lahiri's Interpreter of Maladies established this young writer as one the most brilliant of her generation. Description from prroemzs.typepad.com. I searched for this on bing.com/images
The Namesake - Jhumpa Lahiri Wonderful book with a lot of heart and love. The same name film is fascinating...
The Namesake - Jhumpa Lahiri. Story follows an immigrant who comes to America and makes a home for himself and his family. Very touching.
The Namesake // Jhumpa Lahiri. "Lahiri's quietly dazzling novel is that rare thing: an intimate, closely observed family portrait that effortlessly and discreetly unfolds to disclose a capacious social vision. [A]bout two generations of the Ganguli family and [also] about exile and its discontents, as affecting in its Chekhovian exploration of parents and children as it is resonant in its exploration of what is acquired and lost by immigrants and their children in pursuit of the American Dream."
The Namesake - Jhumpa Lahiri is one of my favorite authors.
