‘Kite Runner’ Author to Publish New Book

For the first time in six years, bestselling author Khaled Housseini is publishing a new book. According to Entertainment Weekly, Housseini, who wrote The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns, will release his next novel on May 21, 2013.

Like his previous novels, Housseini says the new book, entitled And the Mountains Roared, will be about families, as Stephan Lee explains.

[In a statement, Housseini wrote] “My earlier novels were, at heart, tales of fatherhood and motherhood. My new novel is a multigenerational-family story as well, this time revolving around brothers and sisters, and the ways in which they love, wound, betray, honor, and sacrifice for each other.”

After being silent for so long, I’m looking forward to another book from Housseini. I loved The Kite Runner, despite how dark it was. Will you be reading his new book?
