    Any plays I could maybe compare to this novel?
    Main themes are history of Afghanistan, shame and reputation, suffering, love, loyalty, belonging, gender relations and female friendships.

    If you looked at the theme of women being trapped in a male dominated society, as well as suffering, love, loyalty etc, maybe Ibsen's 'Doll's House', although the historical and geographic settings are totally different.

    For my A2 English Lit coursework a few years ago I compared ATSS to 'Antony and Cleopatra' with a focus on female suffering, or something like that.
