“Love and War in Afghanistan”  
عشق و جنگ در افغانستان 

May 2005

Written by Alex Klaits and Gulchin Klaits - published by SEVEN STORIES PRESS – this book narrates real lives in the Northern part of Afghanistan during the Afghan civil war. Per its writer’s request, Farhad Darya wrote a quote which is published in the back of the book as follows:

“… the last days of winter 2005 … in cold Virginia … lean back on a cozy divan … in front of a fireplace … with a cup of hot green tea … in the presence of silence and peace …reading “Love and War in Afghanistan” … mourning deep inside, ashamed of this life of comfort …”
