American Novelist Khaled Hosseini, in Milan to promote And the Mountains Echoed, his third bestseller after The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns enjoyed a thrilling after-hour tour at Leonardo da Vinci's Last Supper. Being such a popular writer I was actually quite relieved to find out how easygoing and graceful he is a person. He seemed truly captivated by my commentary and he even appreciated my sometimes wicked sense of humour. In particular he grinned when I mentioned that the feminine character so close to Jesus was certainly not what another popular American writer claims he is...
It was a huge pleasure to guide Khaled Hosseini to Milan’s hottest museum and considering that he is such a dazzling storysteller, I felt honoured having been able to captivate his and the rest of the audience’s attention for the more than half hour we spent in the Cenacolo.
