Sweeping in scope and mesmerizing in its evocation of time and place, "Burnt Shadows" is an epic narrative of disasters eluded and confronted, loyalties offered and repaid, and loves rewarded and betrayed.
From the Publisher:
Two years after her prospects are shattered by the bombing of Nagasaki, Hiroko Tanaka travels to Delhi in search of new beginnings and arrives in the home of her ex-fiancé's half-sister; but she finds her circumstances halted by conflicts in the Middle East that prompt her family's eventual relocation to America. Original.
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.


"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) 01/26/2009

"[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." - Amanda Craig 03/01/2009

"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." - Madeline Clements 03/13/2009

"Shamsie delicately builds the momentum of everyday life against the insidiously political situations of our times, arriving at surprisingly plausible plot twists. This is...a tribute to her skills as a writer of sharp, compact narratives that leave the reader enticed and provoked in equal measure." - Vikram Johri 07/01/2009
