The Kite Runner


Banned under the Taliban, kite flying is once again now a national pastime in Afghanistan. The Kite Runner has probably done more to educate Western readers about life in Afghanistan under the Taliban than any hard news report. It was the first Afghan novel to fictionalise the country’s culture for a Western audience and blends Afghanistan’s tragic political history with the personal stories of two boys growing up there.
