Home Fire By Kamila Shamsie
Home Fire is the seventh novel by Kamila Shamsie, reimagining Sophocles’s Antigone in a contemporary setting. It won the Women’s Prize for Fiction in 2018, was shortlisted for the Costa Novel Award 2017 and was longlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2017.
After years spent raising her siblings following their mother’s death, Isma is free and finally studying in America. But she cannot stop worrying about her beautiful and headstrong sister Anneka, who is based in London – or their brother, Parvaiz, who has disappeared in pursuit of his own dream. When Eamonn enters the sisters’ lives, two families’ fates are inextricably and devastatingly entwined.
An intelligent, modernised, gripping Greek drama.
