First look at new Hosseini jacket

Bloomsbury has unveiled its cover look for the new novel by Khaled Hosseini, And the Mountains Echoed, to be published on 21st May 2013.

The book will be initially released in hardback and e-book, each priced £18.99.

Hosseini, whose previous books are The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns, has spent six years writing the new novel, which Bloomsbury editor-in-chief Alexandra Pringle described as "a big book in every sense of the world. He has told half a century of history, of a land and a people, through so many different characters, all of whom the reader loves and cares for."
