Home Fire - Kamila Shamsie

Staff Pick
Living under the legacy of their Jihadist father, the Pasha children know to keep their head down and mind their business, all the better to avoid scrutiny and suspicion. That is, until one of them commits a devastating and irreparable act of betrayal. Here is a luminous, charged account of an unshakeable familial bond; of the courage to stand, alone, for loved ones; to insist on the truth in the face of rampant rumors and orchestrated fallacies. Here, too, is an incisive and gut-wrenching reminder of the human lives caught in the politics of immigration and nationalism, of who belongs and who doesn’t, and of those who fall prey to the idea that there is an us and a them, or an us vs. them.
