The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini ’88 reached No. 1 on the New York Times paperback fiction bestseller list in March and has been on the list for more than 30 weeks. In an interview in the winter 2003 issue of SCM, Hosseini said that one of the best parts of his book tours has been hearing from SCU classmates. Hosseini’s brothers, Walid ’89 and Daoud ’95, are also graduates, as is a cousin, Mariam Hosseini ’00. For more information, visit www.kiterunner.com.
