Read in January, 2006

A look into the lives of one particular family in Afghanistan - not necessarily a sample of the median family, but nevertheless a great insight to the family and patriarchal dynamics of this one group. Reads like a novel, however it's written by a journalist who was allowed to live with the bookseller's family for a few months. Very well written.

Sent to my mom in Chile.
