    For more than twenty years Sultan Khan defied the authorities to supply books to the people of Kabul. He was arrested, interrogated and imprisoned, and watched illiterate soldiers burn piles of his books in the street. In spring 2002 award-winning journalist Asne Seierstad spent four months living with the bookseller and his family. As she steps back from the page and lets the Khans tell their stories, we learn of proposals and marriages, hope and fear, crime and punishment. The result is a unique portrait of a family and a ...

A learning experience

by Ada M on Mar 1, 2011

I am glad Asne wrote this book. We need to know more about the life style of families in the middle east. I am loaning to friends and suggested the book for a book club I belong to. More

Informative.

by pamela1717 on Apr 13, 2008

Perhaps I shouldn't have read this book just on the heels of Persian Girls because it was too easy to make comparisons. Although not as well written as PG I found it very educational. I liked the juxtaposition of admiration and disgust I felt for the "Bookseller". It just illuminated how cultures are ... More

YellowTie

Awesome Book!

by YellowTie on Jun 7, 2007

This is a fantastic book to read. I finished reading it in two days because I was not able to put it down, and I have recommended the book to everyone I know. It has opened my eyes to a different way of life outside the US, and it has inspired me to continue reading more books about Middle Eastern ... More
