Khan, who is dying, asks Amir to visit him in Peshawar. Farid is a taxi driver who is initially abrasive toward Amir, but later befriends him. The two boys receive three identical kites and spools of glass string. You agree to receive occasional updates and special offers for The New York Times's products and services. The smell of lamb kebab, the endless glasses of tea, storytelling beneath the pomegranate tree, the kite tournaments of the title - all are simply and powerfully evoked. Assef then badly beats Amir, breaking several bones, until Sohrab uses a slingshot to fire a brass ball into Assef's left eye.

Invalid email address.

Amir finds a kinder fatherly figure in Rahim Khan, Baba's closest friend, who understands him and supports his interest in writing, whereas Baba considers that interest to be worthy only of females. After spending a night with Farid's brother's impoverished family, Amir hides a bundle of money under the mattress to help them.

California-based Khaled Hosseini's first novel is an attempt to correct this, and to remind us of the anonymity it enjoyed before the Soviet invasion in Amir embarks on a successful career as a novelist.
