A compelling tale and look at a country which tragically continues to tear itself apart. The author, Asne Seierstad lives for four months with a family in Afghanistan and writes of their life, their stories, their hardships, proposals, weddings, death and war. Well written tale of Islamic life. From back cover: "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 Seierstad 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 country."
