The Booker Prize-winning modern classic of contemporary war fiction from the Women’s Prize-shortlisted author of The Silence of the Girls

Recommended by Richard Osman

‘One of the few real masterpieces of late twentieth-century British fiction’ Jonathan Coe

‘Original, delicate and unforgettable’ Independent

‘A new vision of what the First World War did to human beings, male and female, soldiers and civilians. Constantly surprising and formally superb’ A. S. Byatt, Daily Telegraph

1917, Scotland. At Craiglockhart War Hospital in Scotland, army psychiatrist William Rivers treats shell-shocked soldiers before sending them back to the front. In his care are poets Siegfried Sassoon and Wilfred Owen, and Billy Prior, who is only able to communicate by means of pencil and paper. . .

Regeneration, The Eye in the Door and The Ghost Road follow the stories of these men until the last months of the war. Widely acclaimed and admired, Pat Barker’s Regeneration trilogy paints with moving detail the far-reaching consequences of a conflict which decimated a generation.
