Read full description of the books Vypálené Stíny:

9. srpen 1945, Nagasaki. Hiroko Tanaka stojí na terase svého domu. Má na sobě kimono s černými jeřáby a přemýšlí o nadcházející svatbě s Konradem Weissem. Pak, zničehonic, se jí svět rozplyne před očima. Hiroko přežije atomový výbuch, ale jako jedinou vzpomínku na to, co kdysi milovala, má do zad vypálené obrysy majestátních ptáků z kimona. Vypraví se hledat nový život ke Konradovým příbuzným do Dillí, kde se zamiluje do Sajída Ašarafa. Ale ztráta vlasti, staré rány i nové světové konflikty se odrážejí v životě rodiny, kterou osud zavede do Indie, Pákistánu i do New Yorku.
