Home Fire
by Kamila Shamsie
Praise For This Book:
"Ingenious and love-struck ... Home Fire takes flight. ... Shamsie drives this gleaming machine home in a manner that, if I weren.t handling airplane metaphors, I would call smashing. ... Builds to one of the most memorable final scenes I.ve read in a novel this century." -New York Times

"[U]rgent and explosive ... near perfect ... a difficult book to put down." -NPR

"[A] haunting novel, full of dazzling moments and not a few surprising turns...Home Fire blazes with the kind of annihilating devastation that transcends grief." -Washington Post

"This wrenching, thought-provoking novel races to a shattering climax."-People Magazine

"A Greek tragedy for the age of ISIS ... spare as a fable yet intensely intimate." -Vogue

"Her last, perfect word serves as a contemporary, against-all-odds, global prayer... Shamsie.s latest is a compelling, stupendous stand-out to be witnessed, honored, and deeply commended."-Christian Science Monitor

"A cross-continental novel about civil disobedience that tackles political and emotional matters with equal assurance." -Time Magazine

"Shamsie.s timely fiction probes the roots of radicalism and the pull of the family." -O, the Oprah Magazine

"A blaze of identity, family, nationalism, and Sophocles. Antigone." -Vanity Fair

"An absorbing and incisive study of race and roots, attachment and affiliation - to a cause, a country, a person, a family - which encompasses five fascinatingly divergent viewpoints... timely and incendiary." -Minneapolis Star-Tribune

"All of Shamsie.s novels are deeply moving and morally complex, leading to the kind of rich reading experience most of us hope for in every novel we pick up. Her newest has all of that and more." -San Francisco Chronicle

"Shamsie.s newest bestseller unpacks the controversial subjects of love, humanity, and extremism with due care." -Brit + Co

"Intelligent, phenomenally plotted, and eminently readable." -Bitch

"Remarkable... [an] engrossing work of literature, one not only important to current political conversation, but also that holds timeless truths and a story that never grows old." -Chicago Review of Books

"Shamsie.s prose is, as always, elegant and evocative. Home Fire pulls off a fine balancing act: it is a powerful exploration of the clash between society, family and faith in the modern world, while tipping its hat to the same dilemma in the ancient one." -The Guardian
