About the Book NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE!
Scheduled for theatre release in November 2007, “The Kite Runner” has a stellar team behind it: Golden Globe-nominated director Marc Forster (“Stranger Than Fiction,” “Finding Neverland,” “Monster’s Ball”) and screenplay writer David Benioff (“Troy”).The Kite Runner
is 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
explores the ways in which we’re damned by our moral failures, and of the extravagant cost of redemption.From the Paperback edition.
