by Khalid Hosseini
The Kite Runner is Hosseini’s first novel, and was adapted into a film of the same name in 2007. It tells the story of Amir, a young boy from the Wazir Akbar Khan district of Kabul, who befriends Hassan, the son of his father’s Hazara servant.
The story is set against a backdrop of tumultuous events, from the fall of Afghanistan’s monarchy through the Soviet invasion, the mass exodus of refugees to Pakistan and the United States, and the rise of the Taliban regime.” synopsis by Wikipedia
