Kamila’s seventh novel, Home Fire is an adaptation of a Greek myth Antigone that reimagines Sophocles’s play in a contemporary setting.

The Prize is awarded to the best book that is inspired by Greek literature or is related to Greek tradition as it celebrates “the cultural cross-fertilisation of the Greek and English-speaking worlds”.
