Praise

“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

“Astonishing… Though it would seem almost impossible to look at that appalling conflict with a fresh eye, 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… a triumph of an imagination at once poetic and practical.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“[Barker’s] depictions of trench warfare are vivid and pack emotional punch.”—The Guardian
