“The Kite Runner author’s latest is a moving saga about sacrifice,
betrayal, and the power of family. . . . More expansive than The Kite Runner
and A Thousand Splendid Suns, the novel spans three generations
and includes overlapping tales of expatriates and aid workers, parents and
children, doctors and drug lords. Hosseini shows how easy it is for people to
brutalize or abandon those they should protect. But his ultimate achievement is
demonstrating the power and persistence of family.”—People (4

UK reviews are just starting to come in for Patrick Flanery's latest. The Guardian says, "In Fallen Land,
Flanery has given us a gripping thriller, and a superb portrayal of how
ordinary men can veer into madness, but its real power lies in its recognition
of the tragic failure of an American dream," and the Sunday Times raves, "Fallen Land is an ambitious thriller vehicle for a dissection of America. . . Fallen
Land impressively examines how thoroughly the American dream has turned
into the American nightmare."
