"Shamsie brilliantly interweaves the lives of an array of characters as she brings the story forward...[in this] intriguing, heartrending tale of human connection." (starred review)
"[The] first third of the novel is an arresting achievement, combining an extraordinary heroine, an exceptional set of circumstances and an almost Fosterian ear for the inadvertent clashing of cultures....Shamsie has made a giant leap forward in BURNT SHADOWS."
"The aesthetics of Shamsie's writing remain unchanged: her interest in the oddities of language and wordplay, her deployment of powerful recurrent images, yet they seem tempered in a newly mature style appropriate to this novel."

Original.
Annotation A lush melodrama, BURNT SHADOWS follows an epic romance that spans time from the atomic bombing of Hiroshima to the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.
