Common Text

NMC Common Text 2014-15 | And the Mountains Echoed2014 - 2015 Common Text Selection

All certificate and undergraduate students will participate in a discussion with faculty and staff about the common text at orientation. Undergraduate students will continue the discussion in courses. You can buy a copy at the NMC Bookstore or borrow a copy of the book from your public library.

And the Mountains Echoed, Khaled Hosseini

About the Book:

In this tale revolving around not just parents and children but brothers and sisters, cousins and caretakers, Hosseini explores the many ways in which families nurture, wound, betray, honor, and sacrifice for one another; and how often we are surprised by the actions of those closest to us, at the times that matter most.

Following its characters and the ramifications of their lives and choices and loves around the globe—from Kabul to Paris to San Francisco to the Greek island of Tinos—the story expands gradually outward, becoming more emotionally complex and powerful with each turning page. (From the publisher.)
