Description The Prolific South African novelist, Nadine Gordimer’s The Pickup (2001) and the promising Afghan writer, Khaled Hosseini’s The Kite Runner (2003) belong to New Literatures in English. The main characters in these two novels undertake their journey from their native place to foreign country in pursuit of happiness, place, prosperity and self-realization. This research paper attempts to make a comparison between Gordimer’s The Pickup and Hosseini’s The Kite Runner in terms of the journey undertaken by the protagonists Abdu and Julie of The Pickup and Amir of The Kite Runner though these two novels are set in a different background.
