The Bookseller of Kabul
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 books in the street.
"A remarkable portrait with deftly woven accounts of weddings and journeys, books and bookselling, relations and squabbles, firmly anchored by pleasing details about food and customs, all set against the backdrop of a derelict city, filthy and crammed but not defeated... [Seierstad] was fascinated by everything she witnessed, and her curiosity and perceptive eye colours every page."
