The Swallows of Kabul

The Swallows of KabulThis is not a cheery book at all in any way, so it wasn't a great read for me right now, in the middle of a cloudy winter (but it is sunny today!). Mohammed Moulessehoul, who writes under the pseudonym Yasmina Khadra, tells a story of a Kabul that has lost almost everything, and gained nothing of worth in return.

One of the most fascinating things about this book, to me, is the author. Do click on the link above to learn more about him.

  1. That's basically what Jeska said about the book, too. Maybe I'll give it a pass, and just click through and read about the author instead. :)
