Bookversations: Home Fire By Kamila Shamsie

This episode’s conversation is inspired by Kamila Shamsie’s, ‘Home Fire’, a reworking of Antigone, a tragic greek play written by Sophocles. Set in contemporary London, Home Fire is the tale of two British families, intertwined by fate.

Dealing with issues of terrorism, faith and love, Home Fire explores what it means to be loyal to a state. We discuss the issue of placing too much expectation on authors who write about Muslim characters and what Capitol Hill has made glaring about radicalisation and terrorism.

We hope you enjoy the episode and as always, we would love to hear your feedback and comments at
