HOME FIRE

—By Kamila Shamsie

The novel is inspired by Sophocles’ Antigone. Weaving a tale of immigrant Pakistani families hailing from varied social strata but being pulled apart by the raging undercurrents of stereotype and dogma. Focusing on a trio of siblings, children of a dead jihadist and a son of a British Minister we see their  lives intertwine as they come together to confront their shared history and uncertain future.

Shamsie shines a light on how homegrown terrorism comes to haunt Britain. She captures the struggle and dilemma and at the same time exposes the blind eye of the system.

TV Series:

American Vandal

Netflix’s latest offering is a satirical take on the True Crime documentary genre. It is at times hilarious while also surprisingly thought provoking, the series revolves around a case of obscene vandalism at a small town high school. At the centre of the show is a troublemaker named Dylan (Jimmy Tatro) who is blamed for the vandalism and expelled. Uncovering the story behind the crime is an ambitious filmmaker named Peter Maldonado (Tyler Alvarez) who is out to find the truth wherever it may lead him.

The show delves deep into the lives of everyday teenagers with footage sourced from iPhone’s and social media such as Instagram and Snapchat and the dialogue also stays true to real life which makes this show a definite must watch!
