The Miles Franklin–winning author of Chai Time at Cinnamon Gardens, Shankari Chandran returns with her keenly awaited follow up, Safe Haven

This stunning novel weaves together the stories of an asylum seeker in offshore detention risking deportation after speaking out for detainees, and a lawyer investigating the suspicious death of a security officer.

Chandran appears in conversation with Elizabeth McCarthy about a richly rendered portrait of displacement, refuge and the lengths people will go to for safety and love, posing vital questions of Australian society today.
