David Savill's novels explore the places where personal stories become political stories. In the last year of the Bosnian war, David lived as a teacher and a student among the refugees of Srebrenica. In an eight-year career as a BBC Current Affairs journalist, he worked on Panorama, This World, Real Story, World at One and PM. His first novel, They Are Trying to Break Your Heart, follows the story of a Bosnian man who seeks the truth about his childhood friend as a Human Rights Researcher discovers her own truths. It is one of ten books longlisted for the Desmond Elliott debut fiction prize. David's second novel will tell the story of a journalist caught up in Vladimir Putin's rise to power.
