Book Description: With The Bookseller of Kabul, award-winning journalist Asne Seierstad has given readers a first-hand look at Afghani life as few outsiders have seen it. Invited to live with Sultan Khan, a bookseller in Kabul, and his family for months, this account of her experience allows the Khans to speak for themselves, giving us a genuinely gripping and moving portrait of a family, and of a country of great cultural riches and extreme contradictions. For more than 20 years, Sultan Khan has defied the authorities -- whether Communist or Taliban -- to supply books to the people of Kabul. He has been arrested, interrogated, and imprisoned, and has watched illiterate Taliban soldiers burn piles of his books in the street. Yet he had persisted in his passion for books, shedding light in one of the world's darkest places. This is the intimate portrait of a man of principle and of his family -- two wives, five children, and many relatives sharing a small four-room house in this war ravaged city. But more than that, it is a rare look at contemporary life under Islam, where even after the Taliban's collapse, the women must submit to arranged marriages, polygamous husbands, and crippling limitations on their ability to travel, learn and communicate with others.

Book Description: Two wounded souls must learn to heal one another after being touched by the same tragedy. Jack MacDonald's life spirals out of control when his wife and daughter are killed in a fatal car crash. Drunken and despondent he loses his cushy job at a major publishing house and is forced to earn a living selling children's books door-to-door. After a DUI takes away his driver's license Jack must find someone to drive him to his nightly appointments. He hires Amanda, an angry young girl who seems to have lost her way in life. When she makes a startling confession, she and Jack are drawn into a relationship neither of them expects nor wants. Their experience takes them on on a journey of mutual self-discovery and spiritual growth; the outcome of which neither can be certain.
