Crib mates, raised together from birth, narrator Raheen and her best friend Karim dream each other's dreams, finish each other's sentences, speak in a language of anagrams. They share an idyllic childhood in upper-class Karachi with parents who are also best friends, even once engaged to the other until they rematched in what they jokingly call "the fiancee swap. What she uncovers takes us back two decades to reveal a story not just of a family's turbulent history but that of a country - and brings us forward to a grown-up Raheen and Karim drawn back to each other in the city that is their true home.

Byrne on Shamsie, 'Kartography'
I should be the last person to be saying this, but there is often something off-putting about enthusiastic recommendations. In Kamila Shamsie's case, this is Orange's assertion that she is one of its "writers for the 21st century". Excuse us, you want to say, but we, and our descendants, will be the judges of that. And yet
Speak in anagrams and lie spine to spine. They are irrevocably bound to one another and to Karachi, Pakistan, a city that is violent, polluted, corrupt, vibrant, brave and ultimately, home. As the years go by, they let a barrier of silence build between them until they are brought together during a summer of strikes and ethnic violence and their relationship stands poised between strained friendship and fated love. Kartography is about ties and bindings in relationships: between friends, between spouses and between a city and its people. As is wont to happen when you read books by the same author, I started comparing Kartography with Homefire and Burnt Shadows. Kartography starts with two 13 yr olds Raheen who is the narrator and Karim, her childhood friend, doing what precocious soon to be teenage children do: wonder aloud on a hundred myriad things, wary of the outer world around them and mindless of what is coming their ways.
