Product Details


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
