Set in Kabul, Afghanistan, Hashimi's fictional debut centers on Rahima—a girl committed to living life as a boy in order to care for her sisters and remain in school. Rahima's great-great-grandmother did the same thing years before, and Hashimi weaves their two stories together. The author discusses the novel this evening.
