A Cup of Friendship
This is the debut fiction novel by the best selling author of the 2007 memoir Kabul Beauty School.
A Cup of Friendship centers around a coffee shop in Kabul owned by a spunky American named Sunny. The coffee shop becomes a meeting place for many ex-pats in worn torn Afghanistan. The Booklist review says, "Rodriguez weaves her tale of life, death, and marriage, relying heavily on that which is currently forbidden and taboo in Afghan society. Readers will appreciate in-depth, sensory descriptions of this oft-mentioned and faraway place that most have never seen."
