We are extremely proud to present the Edinburgh Launch of Damian Barr's debut novel - You Will Be Safe Here. He will be in conversation with Lee Randall to discuss his first foray into fiction. It's set to be an evening to remember.

An ObserverFinancial Times and Guardian Pick for 2019, Damian’s debut novel explores the legacies of abuse, redemption and the strength of the human spirit. Set in two time frames, that of contemporary South Africa and at the height of the Boer War, You Will be Safe Here is a “formally ingenious,” “gripping,” and “luminously compassionate” novel, inspired by real events, that uncovers a hidden colonial history.

Price: £3 redeemable against a copy of You Will Be Safe Here.

Venue: Waterstones Edinburgh - West End, 128 Princes Street, Edinburgh, EH2 4AD.
