Damian Barr

Damian Barr’s memoir Maggie & Me was a BBC Radio 4 Book of the Week and the Sunday Times Memoir of the Year, and won him Stonewall Writer of the Year. Damian writes a column for High Life magazine and hosts his celebrated Literary Salon at The Savoy. The Guardian, Observer and Financial Times put his debut novel, You Will Be Safe Here in their Books to Watch 2019. This novel was partly inspired by the travels and travails of brave Cornish woman Emily Hobhouse who travelled to South Africa in 1900 and brought back the truth about the British concentration camps.
