Penguin reveals cover for Khaled Hosseini’s much anticipated new novel

Penguin Canada has revealed an early peek of the cover of the much anticipated new book by Khaled Hosseini, the international best-selling author of The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns.

Hosseini's new novel, And the Mountains Echoed, will be released on May 21 and is hailed as one of biggest publishing events of 2013. This will be Hosseini's first book in six years.

Penguin Canada provides the following description of the book: "A multigenerational-family story revolving around brothers and sisters, it is an emotional, provocative, and unforgettable novel about how we love, how we take care of one another, and how the choices we make resonate through generations. With profound wisdom, insight and compassion, Hosseini demonstrates once again his deeply felt understanding of the bonds that define us and shape our lives – and what it means to be human."
