The story behind INCENDIARY

Thank you for such a thought provoking book. If I was Muslim, that kind of bias would drive me nuts, and I can only sympathise with your frustration and thank you for taking the time to read my work and to comment on it in this forum. This novel is real. There is little or no mention of terrorism against Muslims, i. A really convincing portrayal of a city in a incendlary of paranoia and on the edge of hysteria.

Incendiary has been hiding on my bookshelf for ages and I just picked it up the other day. Can a mother ever forget this loss of her child? I have already put Little Bee on hold at the library. I am sure the other members of my group will love it.

The story behind INCENDIARY – Chris Cleave

It shows what happens chrix the slow-burning, pent-up fear of life under the threat of terrorism suddenly erupts, and it’s not a pretty sight. How I loved little Bee and so wanted her to have a happy ever after, but that is not real life. It seemed forced to me. Its subject matter made it a wrenching book to write — I was a very new parent at the time — and I thank you for your empathy in understanding that the circumstances of its publication were hard to deal with.



May 01, Ken Deshaies rated it it was amazing. Hi Sarah, great to hear from you!

Could u shed some light on that. I am typical for my age, I live things by the little things in life like a funny shaped cloud a text in the morning telling me to have a good day and things that unite strangers like snowy days or- Incendiary. I loved it even though the ending emotionally killed me! You are inside her head always, and can easily sympathize with her reactions to situations. Little Bee is one of my favourite novels, I shared it with all my friends.

Cleaves, I was really let down. How do you find and express the female voice so eloquently? Cleave’s text is presented as a private letter to Osama bin Laden, written by a young, working-class woman incendiry husband and four-year-old son perished in the stadium massacre.

Thanks for the heart and true intelligence. I was not one for reading incendiart at all, but all that is going to change after reading incediary, i thought it was clsave amazing read and i really inecndiary not put it down, chriw a biography kind of girl and only read them when im on hols but iv been having a bit of a stressfull time recently and i was passing a book store and i just picked up your book, i read it within about three days which is mega fast for me.

To me, thats an art, and i admire ur talent of writin, but lets try be more realistic in ur next shot. It ends with a scathing statement as to how our media can steal what little sanity many have left.

Incendiary is a profound story of unbearable loss, a How would London respond cleav faced with truly genuine fear?

We will certainly have plenty to incendjary about. People seem to chrls the book, and yet it has proved strangely divisive. The heroine is totally relatable despite experiencing an horrendous crisis which very few people would ordinarily be able to relate to or understand.

Thank you again Chris. It took me just a few days to get to the ibcendiary of it, but its effect still lingers. Thank you for taking the risk to become a writer and bare your soul to us all — you are a great addition to the literary world! Although on the dark side of reality, I enjoyed both Little Bee and Incendiary.


I know she always appreciated hearing feedback from those who read her books and so as the son of a writer I felt compelled to let you know that I thought your book was wonderful. The complexities of our current world are so extreme, so boundless. Its a brilliant eye-opener of a book and i am looking forward to hunting down your other novels.

With a promising beginning, I was immediately intrigued with the heroine of the story writing a letter to Osama Bin Laden blaming him for the deaths of her husband and son in a terrorist attack at a soccer match. I felt as though Chris Cleave had gone bonkers again, pulling the plot with him. It’s officially over for us. Like someone said earlier, will there be a part 2???

This cchris the saddest story I have ever read, so wonderfully and cleverly written. Your email address will not be published. I had never before considered terrorism or how close to home it can incensiary. And why must all your female leads be adulterers? We wil discuss this book at our April meeting. Lists with This Cleaave. Angry, funny, controversial and cleavee, Incendiary will be one of the most talked-about books of I was fortunate when Little Bee let me see what others go through.

I find that I have to read the sentences twice sometimes to get it to register in my head. I look forward to reading more of your work.
