Six top books inspired by literary classics

Kamila Shamsie's new novel is Home Fire.

One of her six favorite books inspired by literary classics, as shared at The Week magazine:
Leaf Storm by Gabriel García Márquez

I became aware of this book of stories about the time I started thinking about writing my own adaptation of Antigone. When I started to read the title novella, I was gripped, but had to put it down because I didn't want to think about Márquez's adaptation while working on my own. Time to pick it up again.
