The Closet Afghan

7 Feb

He grew up as a child who didn’t enjoy playing or watching sports as much as he enjoyed books. He began to to write at a very young age, and most of it was sentimental work.
He was perpetually striving to impress his father, and usually always failed because he was a bit too ‘indoorsy’.
He took up English and other writing subjects in college, instead of medicine or engineering.

Khaled Hosseini may not know it or be candid about it, and pardon me for saying this having read only half the book so far, but Amir, the protagonist and narrator of TheKiteRunner is as gay as Elton John!

    Just because he gets married doesn’t mean he’s straight, y’know 😛 And I’m not saying he’s “in a closet” because maybe he doesn’t and will never know that same-sex love exists too.

    Okay okay, I give him a 25% probability of being straight. And with his character descriptions, that’s a LOT!

    I know he’s not as obviously gay as you, but he still fits the bill. 🙂
