A God in Every Stone: Kamila Shamsie
Kamila Shamsie's latest novel, A God in Every Stone (Bloomsbury), has just been published in the UK. Part of it is set on an excavation in Turkey during July 1914 where Vivian Rose Spencer is excavating a temple of Zeus.
I was delighted to receive a mention in the acknowledgements and a pointer to my Sifting the Soil of Greece. [See details]
