Bookseller of Kabul

Anonymous Patron writes “The Bookseller of Kabul, a fictionalised account of life in Afghanistan by Ã…sne Seierstad, Norwegian journalist, will not be published in the US until Oct. 17, but is already attracting considerable attention in Europe. This Sunday, Aug. 31, the Observer, published in London, ran a major review describing how she “lifts the lid on Afghan family life”.
