Not only is Hosseini a great writer, he is a profound and important humanitarian. He’s also a physician. It’s only my thinking, but I bet if he wrote more novels he would make more money for himself. Instead, he is using his fame as a way to help others, and has been all over the world trying to help. He especially is moved to help refugees worldwide.
This site spells out some of the work his foundation does.
Well done, Mr. Helleini. He has my respect.
