Khaled Hosseini's debut novel, The Kite Runner, gained attention slowly and then became a runaway bestseller. His second novel, A Thousand Splendid Suns, an instant blockbuster for sure, is set in Afghanistan during the last war-torn 30 years (see the interview with Hosseini in this issue). Atossa Leoni, who plays Soraya in Marc Forster's film of The Kite Runner, which should be released later this year, reads this powerful story of family, friendship and faith.
