Reviews

Praise for Regeneration

"Dramatic, moving, brilliantly harrowing...a novel thatmakes the madness of war more than a metaphor."--The New York Times

"Earns...a place on the shelf of WWI literature."--Kirkus Reviews

"Extremely accomplished and intelligent... Barker is adept at dramatizing moral dilemmas that have no easy answers."--Entertainment Weekly

"One of the most deserving winners of the prestigious Booker fiction prize in recent years."--The New York Review of Books

"Pat Barker makes both her fictional and her real characters complex and credible....Best of all, she attends to the moral nuances of a time when it was hard to distinguish the lesser insanities from the greater ones."--Los Angeles Times Book Review

"It has been Pat Barker's accomplishment to enlarge the scope of the contemporary English novel....Regeneration is an inspiring book that balances conscience and thevitality of change against a collapsing world."--The New Yorker
