The Bookseller of Kabul by Asne Seierstad (2003)

This is a small book with a little story–actually it’s more like a peek into one man’s world.  He is a bookseller in Kabul both pre and post 9/11.  He’s savvy and Western enough to own a business, yet “backward” enough to torment his daughters and wives by confining them to a miserable life.  It’s easy to hate him, but there’s also much to admire in him.  (fiction)
