Novelist KAMILA SHAMS: Home Fire

August 17, 2017 | 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm


Brookline Booksmith hosts Pakistani novelist KAMILA SHAMSIE— author of Burnt ShadowsKartography, and Salt and Saffron— for a reading from her latest novel, Home Fire, at the Coolidge Corner Public Library.

After raising her orphaned twin siblings, Isma is free; but she can’t stop worrying about her beautiful sister back in London, or their brother, Parvaiz, who’s disappeared. When he resurfaces half a globe away, Isma’s worst fears are confirmed. Then Eamonn— charming, naive, cavalier— enters the sisters’ lives, and suddenly all their fates are devastatingly entwined.
