A Thousand Splendid Suns (11-23-07)

Finished reading A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini. In his latest novel, the author of The Kite Runner focuses on women in Afghanistan from the time of the revoluntion until 2003, when educated women had hopes that the defeat of the Taliban meant a new era.

The Taliban now controls half of the country again, according to today’s story in The Telegraph.
