內容簡介

入圍2017年曼布克文學獎初選名單
「天才之作…小說的最後一幕簡直是本世紀最令人難忘的作品。」─《紐約時報》
一個移民家庭的愛情與家庭離散,造成心碎且不可挽回的結局

Isma終於自由了。母親過世的好幾年,她一直身兼母職,不辭辛苦照顧她的弟妹們,直到她終於有機會到美國重返校園,延續她期盼已久的夢想。然而她心中仍放不下倫敦老家美麗且任性的妹妹及追尋聖戰士父親恐怖遺志的弟弟。就在她準備拋下一切追尋夢想時,她最大的恐懼也就此展開。

英俊且身為政治家之子的Eamonn走進這對姊妹的人生中,他正為了家族繼承權而違抗父母的期望,同時也在追求與Isma姊妹之間的愛情。他會是弟弟Parvaiz生命的救贖者嗎?兩個家族的命運不可避免地碰撞及糾結在,也不禁令我們思考,為了愛情,我們願意犧牲什麼?

LONGLISTED FOR THE MAN BOOKER PRIZE 2017

'Elegant and evocative ... A powerful exploration of the clash between society, family and faith in the modern world' Guardian

'There is high, high music in the air at the end of Home Fire' New York Times

Isma is free. After years spent raising her twin siblings in the wake of their mother's death, she is finally studying in America, resuming a dream long deferred. But she can't stop worrying about Aneeka, her beautiful, headstrong sister back in London – or their brother, Parvaiz, who's disappeared in pursuit of his own dream: to prove himself to the dark legacy of the jihadist father he never knew.

Then Eamonn enters the sisters' lives. Handsome and privileged, he inhabits a London worlds away from theirs. As the son of a powerful British Muslim politician, Eamonn has his own birthright to live up to – or defy. Is he to be a chance at love? The means of Parvaiz's salvation? Two families' fates are inextricably, devastatingly entwined in this searing novel that asks: what sacrifices will we make in the name of love?

A contemporary reimagining of Sophocles' Antigone, Home Fire is an urgent, fiercely compelling story of loyalties torn apart when love and politics collide – confirming Kamila Shamsie as a master storyteller of our times.
