|Another Persian translation of “And the Mountains Echoed” published||
Translated by Shabnam Sa’adat, the book was released by Afraz Publications.
The book had previously been translated into Persian by Mohsen Oqbaii, Mahguneh Ghahreman and Maryam Meftahi. These versions were released respectively by Behzad, Peykan and Alma publishing companies.
Published in 2013 by Riverhead Books, “And the Mountains Echoed” deviates from Hosseini’s style in his first two works by his choice to avoid focusing on any one character.
The book’s foundation is built on the relationship between ten-year-old Abdullah and his three-year-old sister Pari and their father’s decision to sell her to a childless couple in Kabul, an event that ties the various narratives together.
The Persian version of Hosseini’s previous books “The Kite Runner” and “A Thousand Splendid Suns” were among the bestsellers in Iran.
