In Persian folklore, Syngue Sabour is the name of a magical black stone, a patience stone, which absorbs the plight of those who confide in it. It is believed that the day it explodes, after having received too much hardship and pain, will be the day of the Apocalypse. But here, the Syngue Sabour is not a stone but rather a man lying brain-dead with a bullet lodged in his neck. His wife is with him, sitting by his side. But she resents him for having sacrificed her to the war, for never being able to resist the call to arms, for wanting to be a hero, and in the end, after all was said and done, for being incapacitated in a small skirmish

Ainsi résonne l'écho infini des montagnes by Khaled Hosseini( Book )

12 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in French and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

En Afghanistan, des années 1950 à nos jours, mais aussi à Paris dans les années 1970, en Californie dans les années 2000 et sur une île grecque aujourd'hui. A Shadbagh, un minuscule village agricole, Abdullah, 10 ans, s'occupe de sa petite soeur Pari. Entre les deux enfants, le lien est indéfectible, ce qui leur permet d'oublier la mort de leur mère, les absences de leur père qui cherche désespérément du travail et ces jours où la faim les tenaille encore plus qu'à l'habitude. Un jour, leur père décide de partir pour Kaboul où l'oncle Nabi lui aurait trouvé un emploi et d'emmener Pari avec lui. Abdullah sent qu'il se trame quelque chose. Et de fait, leur père, préférant "couper un doigt pour sauver la main", vend Pari à la riche famille pour laquelle travaille Nabi. Une séparation déchirante qui pèsera sur toute la vie d'Abdullah, même après son exil aux Etats-Unis. La petite Pari oublie et grandit à Paris où sa mère, Nila, trop libre pour la société afghane, s'est enfuie au milieu des années 50. Nabi est resté auprès de Suleiman, le mari de Nila, devenu handicapé suite à un AVC. Des années plus tard, bien après la chute des Talibans, Abdullah n'a pas oublié Pari qui, elle, n'a jamais pu combler une sensation de vide, comme s'il lui manquait quelque chose d'indispensable, dont elle ignorait tout?

Da quel momento si porterà dentro un senso di colpa che lo allontanerà dall'amico che vede come denuncia vivente della sua vigliaccheria.
