The launch event of Kamila Shamsie’s new novel A God in Every Stone.
Named last year as one of Granta‘s ‘Best of Young British Novelists’, Kamila Shamsie is the author of five works of fiction. Her most recent, Burnt Shadows, was shortlisted for the Orange Prize for fiction, and has been translated into more than 20 languages.
Her new novel A God in Every Stone is a rich and vivid tale of friendship, injustice, love and betrayal set in India, France, England and Turkey. Exploring the heart of empires fallen and conquered, it reminds the reader that we all have our place in the chaos of history – and that so much of what is lost will not be forgotten.
