Hosseini on Kabul

Author Khaled Hosseini (The Kite Runner, A Thousand Splendid Suns) wrote an essay for yesterday's Guardian about his recent visit to Kabul, the first time he's been to the city since 1976. It is written with the same elegance, grace and gripping detail as his novels; it's as tough to read too, but just as necessary.
