«A powerful exploration of the clash between society, family and faith in the modern world. . Guardian»

«Brave and brilliant ... shocking and strangely beautiful. . Sunday Times»

«Occasionally you know that one of the writers alive at the same time as you has written the book they were born to write . Home Fire has lit a light that'll never go out; Shamsie's version of Antigone reveals the ancient tragedy we're living now. . Ali Smith, Guardian, Books of the Year»

«A timely rejoinder to all the cant and prejudice. An intelligent, thought-provoking and beautifully written novel about family, identity and divided loyalties. . Mail on Sunday»

«Fearless but hugely troubling ... one pays it the highest compliment one can pay fiction: it makes you think. Uncomfortably. . The Times»
