What the Critics are Saying

'A number of authors are publishing the successors to notable hits. Kamila Shamsie follows Home Fire with Best of Friends'

New Statesman Books of The Year 2022

'A new Kamila Shamsie novel is always worth celebrating, but Best of Friends is something else: an epic story that explores the ties of childhood friendship, the possibility of escape, the way the political world intrudes into the personal, all through the lens of two sharply drawn protagonists'

Observer Books of The Year 2022
