A footnote about Khaled Hosseini


Was surfing Khaled Hosseini’s site and discovered he is a doctor, an internist in practice since 1996. The Kite Runner was his first novel. How interesting that we have a novelist coming from another profession, as a lot of novelists used to, rather than writer/teacher novelists. Does medical practice affect his work? If so, how? The novel is in the realist tradition.
