The Kite Runner Illustrated Edition by Khaled Hosseini, Hardcover | Barnes & Noble®A novel by an unknown author who never cracked a hardcover best-seller list, appeared on a morning television show or cut a lucrative movie deal appears on its way to becoming a paperback hit of the summer. Over the next 25 years, the family suffers the consequences of the doctor's secret, while his daughter is reared far away by the nurse who attended the birth. The book sold about 30, copies in hardcover when it was published last year by Viking.

Penguin Group, which has published the paperback edition of "The Memory Keeper's Daughter," hopes that it will follow a similar trajectory.
