In his book, A Thousand Splendid Suns, author Khaled Hosseini, is musing on time:
“Laila had learned a fundamental truth about time: like the accordion on which Tariq’s father sometimes played old Pashto songs, time stretched and contracted depending on Tariq’s [her lover] absence or presence.”
Khaled Hosseini, A Thousand Splendid Suns (Great Britain: Bloomsbury, 2007), 98.
