Reviews

Praise for The Ghost Road

"Complex and ambitious...the masterwork to date of a singular and ever-evolving novelist who has consistently made up her own rules."--The New York Times

"A literary achievement...Remarkable...A fine, singularly intelligent and deeply moving novel."--San Francisco Chronicle

"Persuasive and original...Pat Barker presents the First World War as the test tube of the human spirit."--The New Yorker

"Ambitious...convincing...challenging."--The Wall Street Journal

"The novelist Milan Kundera says that fiction was invented to discover truth. A book like The Ghost Road is what he must have had in mind. Barker writes brilliantly--wisely."--The Washington Post

"A triumph of the imagination at once poetic and practical...Barker has succeeded in ways that define the novelist's art: by close observation as well as by deployment of a broad and painfully compassionate vision, all rendered in prose whose very simplicity speaks volumes...Deeply eloquent."--Publishers Weekly
