#87 – Home Fire by Kamila Shamsie

It’s time to discuss our Books and Boba December 2019 book club pick, Home Fire by Kamila Shamsie, a modern day retelling of the Greek tragedy Antigone. We discuss the book’s themes of what loyalty to family, love, and country means when your people are considered enemies of the state, and the physical and psychological costs of the sacrifices people make to survive as diaspora immigrants.
