Notes From Your Bookseller

This timeless tale of fathers and sons, class and wealth, and of the history and future of Afghanistan is told through the eyes of two boys, best friends against all odds. It’s a story of sin and forgiveness that asks the question, what can (and can’t) be redeemed?

The 20th anniversary edition of the #1 New York Times bestselling novel beloved by readers the world over, with a new afterword by the author

The unforgettable, heartbreaking story of the unlikely friendship between a wealthy boy and the son of his father’s servant, caught in the tragic sweep of history, The Kite Runner transports readers to Afghanistan at a tense and crucial moment of change and destruction. A powerful story of friendship, it is also about the power of reading, the price of betrayal, and the possibility of redemption; and an exploration of the influence of fathers over sons—their love, their sacrifices, their lies.

Since its publication in 2003, The Kite Runner has become a beloved, one-of-a-kind classic of contemporary literature, touching millions of readers, and launching the career of one of America's most treasured writers.
