The internationally beloved and bestselling novel-now in a beautifully illustrated gift edition.
An unforgettable story of honour, courage, and betrayal set in war-torn Afghanistan as two small boys test their friendship to its limits. Compelling, heartrending, and etched with details of a history never before told in fiction, The Kite Runner is a story about the ways in which we are damned by our moral failures, and of the extravagant cost of redemption.
This breathtaking edition is newly designed with two-colour art throughout, and includes three full-colour photo inserts-all printed on beautiful paper. Printed endpapers and an exquisite, printed linen case complete this gorgeous, must-have volume.
