Inspired by real events, You Will Be Safe Here uncovers a hidden colonial history and present-day darkness while exploring humanity’s capacity for cruelty and kindness.

Set in South Africa in 1901 and 2010, the novel draws parallels between a concentration camp at the height of the Boer War and a modern-day training camp which makes ‘men out of boys’.

‘It’s rare for a novel to go so deep that you come out of reading it a different person from when you went in. Damian Barr’s investigation of a part of South Africa’s history the British have been trying to forget for many many years is such a book. It was a very brave book to write, and parts of it call for some courage to read, but nothing more unusual and impressive has appeared for years.’ Diana Athill
