The bestselling author of The Kite Runner sits down with North Carolina Bookwatch host D.G. Martin to discuss his latest novel, now out in paperback. And the Mountains Echoed continues The Kite Runner's themes of family and friendship, crisscrossing the globe—from Greece to Kabul to Paris to San Francisco—in an intergenerational tale about how families nurture and injure each other. Michiko Kakutani at the New York Times called it Hosseini's "most assured and emotionally gripping story yet." This appearance highlights not only his literary work, but the global humanitarian efforts that flow into it. Buy a copy of the paperback from presenter Flyleaf Books to gain admission. —Zack Smith
