Update: Home Fire by Kamila Shamsie

I finished Home Fire at the weekend, and it has given me much to think about. It’s one of those novels that increases in depth and stimulates more ideas the more you dwell on it. I had a great discussion about it with my colleague, teasing out themes and refining the questions we’d most like to ask the author – before we popped over to the Bloomsbury offices and did just that! Yes, this week I had the great privilege to not only meet Kamila Shamsie and express my admiration for her work but also to interview her and find out more about her inspiration for Home Fire. It was an amazing experience, and one that has only increased how much I admire her and her work.

The interview will be on the Foyles Youtube channel in due course (although thankfully I won’t be on camera!), I’ll pop the link up as soon as it appears.
