The 20 Best New Paperback Beach Reads
And the Mountains Echoed, by Khaled Hosseini
Following The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns, Hosseini opens his third novel in prewar Afghanistan, but moves it westward from there (to Greece, France, and the States),
in a generation-spanning story of siblings separated by tragedy and hardship but bound by love.
