A NEW FORMAT FOR A HOUSEHOLD NAME: With over 1.5 million copies of his books sold to date in Canada, Khaled Hosseini is a household name. The simple, stunning language and beautiful illustrations of Sea Prayer will make his work accessible to an even wider audience.
A TIMELY STORY: The publication of Sea Prayer will coincide with the third anniversary of the death of Alan Kurdi. As the civil war in Syria still rages, Sea Prayer illuminates the humanity of each person undertaking dangerous voyages to escape conflict.
A WORTHY CAUSE: Khaled Hosseini will be donating his author proceeds from Sea Prayer to the UNHCR, the United Nations Refugee Agency. By purchasing the book, readers are contributing directly to the lifesaving work that the UNHCR is doing for families like Marwan’s.
Praise for Khaled Hosseini:
“Mr. Hosseini’s narrative gifts have deepened over the years…. That Mr. Hosseini manages…to actually succeed in spinning his characters’ lives into a deeply affecting choral work is a testament both to his intimate knowledge of their inner lives, and to his power as an old-fashioned storyteller.”—The New York Times
“Hosseini’s writing makes our hearts ache, our stomachs clench, and our emotions reel…. Hosseini tells this saddest of stories in achingly beautiful prose through stunningly heroic characters whose spirits somehow grasp the dimmest rays of hope.”—USA Today
“Some writers, like Khaled Hosseini, know how to whisk rough moral fiber into something exquisite…over and over again, he takes complicated characters and roasts them slowly, forcing us to revise our judgments about them and to recognize the good in the bad and vice versa.”—The Washington Post
“Readers flocked to The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns because Hosseini so richly illuminated an unfamiliar world…the heartwarming closing pages [of And the Mountains Echoed] remind us why the author has attracted such an ardent following.”—The Boston Globe
“Hosseini’s work is uplifting, enlightening, universal.”—Fort Worth Star-Telegram
