The Kite Runner: in Photos

For those of you who’ve read and loved The Kite Runner, as I have, here’s a pictoral essay in Wired about kiterunning. Note the bandaged finger–yes, the glass-encrusted or wire strings cut the fingers, and that’s really what it’s all about. Read the essay and, if you haven’t already, run out and get a copy of The Kite Runner. Having been to Afghanistan, I can tell you that Khaled Hosseini’s’s description of Kabul is spot-on. I’ve been in some of the houses Hossaini describes, which makes the book all the more real and tragic. A beautiful people, the Afghans. Lime
