Product description


Passionate ... Individual characters, drawn together by historical imperatives, change each other, like tints laid side by side in a watercolour (Independent)

Love, politics, history - it has it all (Sunday Telegraph)

A fast-moving, well-researched story that reminds us of the contradictions of Empire in the age of the first worldwide war ... A God in Every Stone is a valuable reminder that the legacy of the Great War stretched far beyond Versailles (Joanna Biggs Sunday Times)

First-rate - intelligent, vivid and completely absorbing (Harry Ritchie Daily Mail)

Burns with quiet ferocity in every elegant, measured line ... beautifully written, thought-provoking (Tina Jackson Metro)

Evokes the past beautifully ... a moving story of love and betrayal, generosity and brutality, hope and injustice, full of characters that stay with you ... A God in Every Stone will surely confirm Shamsie's increasing eminence in the British world of letters (Tabish Khair Financial Times)

Its pages are lit by Shamsie's eloquent prose (Helen Dunmore Guardian)

A sensual treasury of descriptive ornamentation (Wendy Idle The Times)

The voices of those silenced from the pages of history resound in Kamila Shamsie's accomplished, atmospheric sixth novel ... Shamsie excavates the deepest corners of the human heart, leaving few stones unturned in this exploration of how human motivation can shape history (Anita Sethi Observer)

It is a rare writer who can transport her readers in just a few pages to another place and time. Shamsie's writing is so evocative that she does just that ... complex and spell-binding (Lucy Popescu Independent on Sunday)

Book Description

A stunning new novel from the Granta Best of Young British, Orange shortlisted author of Burnt Shadows
