Product Details

Praise

“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
