Kamila SHAMSIE ... Burnt Shadows (Bloomsbury/Picador USA, 2009)

In my book, Kamila Shamsie's Burnt Shadows is one of the best books of the year. It could possibly win both the Orange and Booker Prizes this year, or at least on the shortlists! It deserves a place on the reading list of those who enjoy literary fiction. However, I prefer the cover of the Picador USA edition.

My money's still on Marilynne Robinson to take home the Orange Prize for her novel HOME this year, though Kamila Shamsie is a good writer as well.

I just bought two copies of Kamila Shamsie's Burnt Shadows. One's a present. The Picador USA edition is very nice compared to the Bloomsbury edition.
