Sobre este título:
"The most ambitious novel yet by this talented writer. In Burnt Shadows, Kamila Shamsie casts her imagination far and wide"
-- Mohsin Hamid
'Burnt Shadows is a historical novel for our times. Kamila Shamsie reaches across races, decades and continents. She is, as Salman Rushdie says on the cover, "a writer of immense ambition". I read it with admiration for her historical imagination' -- Charlotte Moore, Telegraph
'Burnt Shadows is audacious in its ambition, epic in its scope. A startling expansion of the author's intentions, imagination and craftsmanship. One can only admire the huge advances she has made, and helped us to make, in understanding the new global tensions.' -- Anita Desai
'How marvellous Kamila Shamsie is...I hope she wins every prize there is...I hope a lot of people read it.'
-- Xandra Bingley, author of Bertie, May and Mrs Fish
'Kamila Shamsie is a writer of immense ambition and strength. She understands a great deal about the ways in which the world's many tragedies and histories shape one another, and about how human beings can try to avoid being crushed by their fate and can discover their humanity, even in the fiercest combat zones of the age. Burnt Shadows is an absorbing novel that commands, in the reader, a powerful emotional and intellectual response.'
-- Salman Rushdie
'Shamsie's awesome new novel which spans six decades and the entire globe, from Japan via Delhi to New York and Afghanistan' -- Harper's Bazar
'Through its succession of seemingly disparate, acutely observed worlds, Burnt Shadows reveals the impact of shared histories, hinting at larger tragedies through individual loss'
-- Maya Jaggi, The Guardian
'the author deserves credit for tackling terrorism and its causes' -- Christina Koning, The Times
It's fantastic. It's what fiction can and should do. I have not read Kamila's work before, but I will go back in and read it all now. I am reminded of Lorca when I read this book and feel that she has found the pulse of the wound that probes through to the opposite side .... Wonderful! It will be one of the year's best
-- Colum McCann
`Its breadth and depth are wonderful...Beautifully paced, and delicately written;the past evoked with such lyricism and pain...it has such tenderness.'
-- Barbara Trapido
