As the Taliban fell, Norwegian journalist Asne Seierstad rode into Kabul with the Northern Alliance.

With the fall of the Taliban, there was expected to be a flowering of liberalism, but this was not to be.

Asne Seierstad spent four months living with the family of the man known as the bookseller of Kabul, from which the book gains its title.

Written in the style of a novel, The Bookseller of Kabul paints a very depressing picture of the lives of women in Afghanistan.
