The Saviours is set in modern-day Cambodia and anchored in the intertwined lives of three white Westerners working on the country’s enduring challenges three decades after the devastating Khmer Rouge era.
Set against the backdrop of an expat Cambodia full of hedonism, paradoxes and hypocrisy, The Saviours explores the complexities of aid work and why many are motivated to try to ‘save’ a country which isn’t their own.
Originally from Bray, Co. Wicklow, Maeve Galvin has worked as an international development worker across the United Nations and non-profit organisations for a decade and has lived and worked in Ireland, Cambodia, Nigeria, Myanmar and the United States. She currently lives in Temple Bar, Dublin with her partner.
The Saviours is her first novel.
