Multan Book Club July Reading 2018(Home Fire, Kamila Shamsie)

Sat Jul 28, 2018, at 03:30 pm to 06:30 pm

"It is in this move away from the earliest incarnations of the myth that Shamsie’s novel is most successful: she drops the incestuous nature of the children’s parentage, and ditches the second brother, so that Parvaiz is guilty of all kinds of things, but not fratricide. This costs her something in the ambivalence the reader must feel about Parvaiz and correspondingly reduces some of the potency of Aneeka’s sacrifice. But it grounds the novel in the here and now, rather than allowing it to slide into melodrama, an undeniable risk with tragedy-turned-fiction – although it perhaps contributes to the novel’s slightly frustrating conclusion.

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.

Announcing Home Fire as winner of Woman Fiction Prize 2018, the £30,000 award, chair of judges Sarah Sands said the panel “chose the book which we felt spoke for our times … Home Fire is about identity, conflicting loyalties, love, and politics. And it sustains mastery of its themes and its form. It is a remarkable book which we passionately recommend.”
