The kite runner by Khaled Hosseini( Book )
501 editions published between 2003 and 2017 in 22 languages and held by 11,598 libraries worldwide
An epic tale of fathers and sons, of friendship and betrayal, that takes us from Afghanistan in the final days of the monarchy to the atrocities of the present. The unforgettable, heartbreaking story of the unlikely friendship between a wealthy boy and the son of his father's servant, The Kite Runner is a beautifully crafted novel set in a country that is in the process of being destroyed. It is about the power of reading, the price of betrayal, and the possibility of redemption, and it is also about the power of fathers over sons - their love, their sacrifices, their lies
A thousand splendid suns by Khaled Hosseini( Book )
289 editions published between 1988 and 2016 in 17 languages and held by 8,454 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
And the mountains echoed by Khaled Hosseini( Book )
101 editions published between 2012 and 2017 in 11 languages and held by 5,741 libraries worldwide
Presents a story inspired by human love, how people take care of one another, and how choices resonate through subsequent generations. Afghanistan, 1952. Abdullah and his sister Pari live with their father and step-mother 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 Adbullah, Pari, as beautiful and sweet-natured as the fairy for which she was named, is everything; there is an unparalleled bond between these two motherless sibings. What happens to them, and the large and small manners in which it echos through the lives of so many other people is example of the moral complexity of life. In this multigenerational novel revolving around parents and children, brothers and sisters, cousins and caretakers, the author explores the many ways in which family members love, wound, betray, honor, and sacrifice for one another

The patience stone : [sang-e saboor] by Atiq Rahimi( Sound Recording )
4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 132 libraries worldwide
In Persian folklore, Syngue Sabour is a magical stone, a patience stone, that absorbs the plight of those who confide in it. But here, the Syngue Sabour is not a stone, but a man lying brain-dead. His wife sits by his side, resenting him for not resisting the call to arms, for wanting to be a hero, and in the end, for being incapacitated. Yet she cares, speaking to him, revealing her deepest desires, pains, and secrets. She speaks of her life, not knowing if her husband hears, confessing about sex and love and her anger against a man who never understood her, and who mistreated her. Free of oppression, she leads her story up to a great secret that is unthinkable in a country like Afghanistan. Rahimi captures with great courage and spare, poetic prose the reality of everyday life for an intelligent woman under the oppressive weight of the Taliban regime in Afghanistan

Ainsi résonne l'écho infini des montagnes by Khaled Hosseini( Book )
12 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in French and held by 74 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?
