The Swallows of Kabul

'THE Swallows of Kabul' is a depressing book on the life in Afghanistan post the Taliban. Unlike Khaled Hosseini, the author, writing under the pseudonym Yasmina Khadra, gives a hopeless and disturbing account of a country ravaged by war and living under the shadows of a group with extreme religious views.
