A thousand splendid suns by Khaled Hosseini( Book )

299 editions published between 1988 and 2018 in 17 languages and held by 8,831 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Publisher: After more than two years on the bestseller lists, Khaled Hosseini returns with a beautiful, riveting, and haunting novel of enormous contemporary relevance. A Thousand Splendid Suns is a breathtaking story set against the volatile events of Afghanistan's last thirty years--from the Soviet invasion to the reign of the Taliban to post-Taliban rebuilding--that puts the violence, fear, hope and faith of this country in intimate, human terms. It is a tale of two generations of characters brought jarringly together by the tragic sweep of war, where personal lives--the struggle to survive, raise a family, find happiness--are inextricable from the history playing out around them. Propelled by the same storytelling instinct that made The Kite Runner a beloved classic, A Thousand Splendid Suns is at once a remarkable chronicle of three decades of Afghan history and a deeply moving account of family and friendship. It is a striking, heart-wrenching novel of an unforgiving time, an unlikely friendship, and an indestructible love--a stunning accomplishment

So, then. You want a story and I will tell you one ... Afghanistan, 1952. Abdullah and his sister Pari live with their father and stepmother in the small village of Shadbagh. Their father, Saboor, is constantly in search of work and they struggle together through poverty and brutal winters. To Abdullah, Pari - as beautiful and sweet-natured as the fairy for which she was named - is everything. More like a parent than a brother, Abdullah will do anything for her, even trading his only pair of shoes for a feather for her treasured collection. Each night they sleep together in their cot, their heads touching, their limbs tangled. One day the siblings journey across the desert to Kabul with their father. Pari and Abdullah have no sense of the fate that awaits them there, for the event which unfolds will tear their lives apart; sometimes a finger must be cut to save the hand. Crossing generations and continents, moving from Kabul, to Paris, to San Francisco, to the Greek island of Tinos, with profound wisdom, depth, insight and compassion, Khaled Hosseini writes about the bonds that define us and shape our lives, the ways in which we help our loved ones in need, how the choices we make resonate through history and how we are often surprised by the people closest to us

In Persian folklore, Syngue Sabour is the name of a magical black stone, a patience stone, which absorbs the plight of those who confide in it. It is believed that the day it explodes, after having received too much hardship and pain, will be the day of the Apocalypse. But here, the Syngue Sabour is not a stone but rather a man lying brain-dead with a bullet lodged in his neck. His wife is with him, sitting by his side. But she resents him for having sacrificed her to the war, for never being able to resist the call to arms, for wanting to be a hero, and in the end, after all was said and done, for being incapacitated in a small skirmish

Ainsi résonne l'écho infini des montagnes by Khaled Hosseini( Book )

12 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in French and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

En Afghanistan, des années 1950 à nos jours, mais aussi à Paris dans les années 1970, en Californie dans les années 2000 et sur une île grecque aujourd'hui. A Shadbagh, un minuscule village agricole, Abdullah, 10 ans, s'occupe de sa petite soeur Pari. Entre les deux enfants, le lien est indéfectible, ce qui leur permet d'oublier la mort de leur mère, les absences de leur père qui cherche désespérément du travail et ces jours où la faim les tenaille encore plus qu'à l'habitude. Un jour, leur père décide de partir pour Kaboul où l'oncle Nabi lui aurait trouvé un emploi et d'emmener Pari avec lui. Abdullah sent qu'il se trame quelque chose. Et de fait, leur père, préférant "couper un doigt pour sauver la main", vend Pari à la riche famille pour laquelle travaille Nabi. Une séparation déchirante qui pèsera sur toute la vie d'Abdullah, même après son exil aux Etats-Unis. La petite Pari oublie et grandit à Paris où sa mère, Nila, trop libre pour la société afghane, s'est enfuie au milieu des années 50. Nabi est resté auprès de Suleiman, le mari de Nila, devenu handicapé suite à un AVC. Des années plus tard, bien après la chute des Talibans, Abdullah n'a pas oublié Pari qui, elle, n'a jamais pu combler une sensation de vide, comme s'il lui manquait quelque chose d'indispensable, dont elle ignorait tout?
