Publisher Description:
This phenomenal international bestseller is "an admirable, revealing portrait of daily life in a country that Washington claims to have liberated but does not begin to understand" (Washington Post).

This mesmerizing portrait of a proud man who, through three decades and successive repressive regimes, heroically braved persecution to bring books to the people of Kabul has elicited extraordinary praise throughout the world and become a phenomenal international bestseller. The Bookseller of Kabul is startling in its intimacy and its details -- a revelation of the plight of Afghan women and a window into the surprising realities of daily life in Afghanistan.

"The most intimate description of an Afghan household ever produced by a Western journalist...Seierstad is a sharp and often lyrical observer." --New York Times Book Review
