About the Author

Pat Barker is the author of sixteen novels, beginning with her working-class masterpiece Union Street in 1982. Her Regeneration Trilogy novels, set in the First World War, were awarded the Booker Prize and praised as some of the greatest historical novels in British literature. Her latest novels are The Silence of the Girls, which was shortlisted for the Women's Prize for Fiction and the Gordon Burn Prize in the UK and won the Independent Bookshop Award in 2019, and The Women of Troy. She was made a CBE (Commander of the Order of the British Empire) in 2000. She lives in Durham, England.

Reviews

"An impressive work, illuminating with compassion and insight the toll the war exacted from Britain's combatants and their world... Perhaps the book's greatest achievement is the lucid sense it provides of that maddening and heartbreaking species of absurdity one character calls 'a certain kind of Englishness.'"--The New York Times

"Quietly powerful... As haunting as its predecessor, this moving antiwar novel is also a cautionary tale about the price of cultural conformity."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"There seems to be absolutely no skepticism about this process in Barker's fictional make-up--and this perhaps is what gives her work its undeniable integrity... By highlighting the war's persecuted sexual and political dissenters, The Eye In the Door, like all of Barker's work, shows her commitment to the process of reclaiming silenced voices."--The Guardian
