Peirene Press is thrilled to say that Khaled Hosseini, author of The Kite Runner, has read and reviewed Peirene Press Now! No.3, Shatila Stories. This is what he said about the book:
‘This remarkable novel isn’t about the refugee voice; it is born from it and told through it. Camp life in Shatila is rendered in vivid, haunting, sometimes brutal detail. But on every page, the glint of hope for dignity and a better life is heartbreakingly alive.’ Khaled Hosseini, author of The Kite Runner.
Shatila Stories is a novel by 9 refugee writers, released June 18th for Refugee Week, with all profits supporting Syrian refugees in nine camps! To find out more about the book, click here.
