Shortlisted for the Orange PrizeBy the acclaimed winner of the Women's Prize for Fiction 2018August 9th, 1945, Nagasaki. Hiroko Tanaka steps out onto her veranda, taking in the view of the terraced slopes leading up to the sky. She is twenty-one and on the verge of marrying Konrad Weiss. In a split second, the world turns whiteIn the numbing aftermath of a bomb that obliterates everything she has known, all that remains are the bird-shaped burns on her back, an indelible reminder of the world she has lost. In search of new beginnings, Hiroko travels to Delhi to find Konrad's relatives and falls in love with their employee, Sajjad Ashraf. As the years unravel, new homes replace those left behind and old wars are seamlessly usurped by new conflicts. But the shadows of history - personal, political - are cast over the entwined worlds of different families as they are transported from Pakistan to New York, and in the novel's astonishing climax, to Afghanistan in the immediate wake of 9/11.

A formidable arching tale about loss and foreignness
Powerful, epic yet skilfully controlled . Shamsie's voice is clear and compelling, with a welcome sparseness
A giant of novel . Beautifully realised
Shamsie achieves the near impossibility of a truly intimate epic tale . I challenge anyone to put this book down lightly
Completely authentic, complex, and breath-stopping
