Damian Barr received a critics' ovation for his maiden novel, You Will Be Safe Here. Spanning South Africa's history from colonial brutality to post-apartheid turbulence, it is a tale of two mothers a century apart who are fighting for the fate of their sons. Each is unaware that their fates are intertwined -- a reminder of the legacy of crimes committed in the past.

‘Lean, beautiful prose … It pulls you in, breaks your heart and then ultimately repairs it.’ Jojo Moyes, The Observer.

‘Where many novels run out of steam as they approach the end, You Will Be Safe Here grows more engaging with each chapter.’ The Irish Times.
