yes! I own both and it could have easily been on that list too. I love the family aspect of his writing, but unsurprisingly, am more drawn to the “mother-daughter” relationship in a thousand suns vs the “father-son” relationship of kite runner, hence picking a thousand suns.
also he has another book out and I haven’t read it and I really NEED to read it

Massachusetts State Police Issue Apology for “Racial Profiling Saves Lives” Bumper Sticker, But Not Before Lying About It
Massachusetts State Police issued an apology Monday for a bumper sticker on one of their police cruisers that read: “Racial Profiling Saves Lives,” but not before lying about it.
Boston resident Chris Kantos, was walking Sunday morning and came across on official police cruiser, number 1183, and noticed an odd bumper sticker on it.
Kantos tweeted this image out immediately.

Instead of apologizing immediately, Boston PD removed the sticker and published a second image of the cruiser with no bumper sticker. Then accused Kantos of photoshopping the image.

“Why on earth would I photoshop something like that?” Kantos asked on Twitter.
