A-level English Lit NEA help!

I'm in year 12 working towards my NEA and soon I have to decide on a question as well as my books. I have no idea on what books I want to study but I do have a chosen theme (representation of race or of women). Could you please give me suggestions I am stuck!
I really liked reading "Home Fire" - I found it really cool after I'd read Antigone, which it's based on. Would be good for both those themes.

Hey, who are both these poems by?, because there are many poems with the same title.

Antigone is a play by Sophocles. I read the Don Taylor translation (Bloomsbury).
Home Fire is a novel by Kamila Shamsie
Would definitely recommend reading them together
