Kamila Shamsie’s new novel Home Fire is a contemporary retelling of Sophocles’s Antigone; set in the UK, US and Syria, it is a powerful tale of loyalty and love; two families’ fates intertwine amid rising danger, jihad and political unrest.

She will be in conversation with the award-winning author Jeanette Winterson, Professor of New Writing at The University of Manchester.
