DIESEL, A Bookstore: Amy Waldman discusses and signs "A Door in the Earth"

For readers of Cutting for Stone and The Reluctant Fundamentalist, A Door in the Earth is about an idealistic young Afghan-American woman trapped between her ideals and the complicated truth.

Amy Waldman, who reported from Afghanistan for the New York Times after 9/11, has created a taut, propulsive novel about power, perspective, and idealism that brushes aside the dust of America's longest-standing war to reveal the complicated truths beneath.
