Damian Barr's debut novel is made up of twin narratives of internment. The first part is set in 1901 and takes the form of a diary written by the wife of a Boer farmer taken to the Bloemfontein Concentration Camp. The second half of the novel, set in Johannesburg in 2010, tells the story of a 16-year-old boy sent to a Safari Training Camp where "they make men out of boys".

Writer and columnist Damian Barr's memoir, Maggie & Me, won the Paddy Power Political Books 'Satire' Award and Stonewall Writer of the Year Award. He lives in Brighton.
