List of Books of KAMILA SHAMSIE


Soul mates from birth, Karim and Raheen finish one another's sentences, speak in anagrams and lie spine to spine. They are irrevocably bound to one another and to Karachi, Pakistan, a city that is violent, polluted, corrupt, vibrant, brave and, ultimately, home.

As the years go by, they let a barrier of silence build between them until they are brought together during a summer of strikes and ethnic violence in Karachi when Raheen first comes to know a secret about the past of their parents. Something had happened in 1971, the year the war broke out with the Bengalis in then East Pakistan, now Bangladesh. Karim's mother is a Bengali, an unpleasant truth to live with, in the Karachi of 1971, which leads to unpredictable happenings in their parents' lives as well as theirs.
