When discussing delicate themes such as nationalism, an author sparks debate. But this study focuses on the various forms of identities woven within Kamila Shamsie’s characters in Home Fire and Burnt Shadows. This research aims to see if the fictitious characters of both these novels have a postcolonial perspective. Sometimes, Kamila Shamsie fits more as a traveller than a writer as her characters travel from one location to the next, establishing cross-cultural identities. The paper will look at various topics relating to identity and adjustment in foreign lands, regions, societies, and polities, both in the motherland and abroad.
