“What the sounds and smells do not divulge, gossip supplies. It spreads like wildfire in the neighborhood, where everyone is watching one another's morals.”
Åsne Seierstad, The Bookseller of Kabul

“War was a central theme in maths books too. School books - because the Taliban printed books soley for boys - did not calcualte in apples and cakes, but in bullets and kalasnikovs. Something like this: 'little Omar has a kalasnikov with three magazines. There are twenty bullets in each magazine. He uses two thirds of the bullets and kills sixty infidels does he kill with each bullet?”
Åsne Seierstad, The Bookseller of Kabul

“Anonymity became a release, the only place to which I could turn.”
Åsne Seierstad, The Bookseller of Kabul
