Shaan said, “Karachi born Pakistani-British writer Kamila Shamsie has won the International Women’s Prize for Fiction with ‘Home Fire’, a novel about love, radicalism and conflicting loyalties. Shamsie beat five other finalists including an American writer.”

Neelum Afridi said, “In a world where people talk about a book that isn’t even released yet, I’d like to talk about a book that won an international award.”
