Dear Mr. Hosseini...
I feel your words and I feel your pain because you were an inspiration to me when I wrote "The Libyan". For that, I want to thank you, from my heart to yours.
Your books took me on a journey to Afghanistan, a country I knew little about. I was mesmerized, and I felt what you were feeling...without being there.
I hope in some small way I was able to introduce my readers to another enigmatic world...Libya. I started writing "The Libyan" the day Gaddafi died. There was so much hope for a free Libya 5 years ago.
Today, sadly, another form of terror has replaced that hope and dream, and I too am depressed...
