Kamila Shamsie’s Home Fire , a 21st-century rewrite of Sophocles’s Antigone, has won this year’s Women’s Prize for Fiction. Congrats to her!
There was a lot of discussion about this year’s prize over at The Mookse and the Gripes Goodreads group (see here). Paul reviewed Home Fire here. And if you want to look back a further to Shamsie’s 2009 novel, Burnt Shadows, I reviewed it here.
