From the Author
This book offers views of middle class, Afghan family life rarely referenced in other books or news stories. My husband's fluency in Farsi and Dari allowed us to be "insiders" during our Peace Corps days. I developed enough proficiency in Dari to regain that status on my own during the past 12 years. I also interacted with Afghans from a wide range of social classes during my work and travel in 16 provinces of the country.
