This very short little book (really a novella) was written in Dari by Atiq Rahimi and translated by Erdag M. Goknar. It's written in second person (I think this is only the second novel I've read in second person) and set in Soviet-occupied Afghanistan.
It's amazing how much you know about the main character after reading such a short book, or really, all the characters. There's more here than meets the eye when you pick the book up. Recommended.
As for books written in second person, I'm still deciding if I like it, but I think I do. Both second-person novels I've read have not been about cheery subjects at all so that doesn't necessarily endear me to the writing style, but the characters are so much more immediate. I might search out a few more. (Or take recommendations!)
