Pat Barker's astounding psychological journey through World War I continues with The Eye in the Door, a Guardian Fiction Prize-winning novel. This inspired historical fiction illuminates a nation on the brink of losing itself as the German challenge to its world empire appears overwhelming. It is the spring of 1918, and-faced with defeat-a beleaguered British government and a vengeful public target pacifists and homosexuals as scapegoats. Many are jailed, and others are forced to lead dangerous double lives, as "the eye in the door" symbolizes the paranoia that threatens to unravel the very fabric of British society. With this audiobook, Barker enhances her reputation as the best British author of her generation. She is the Booker Prize-winning author of The Ghost Road and Regeneration. Through his range of accents and compelling dramatic touch, narrator Steven Crossley brings this era of cataclysmic change alive for the listener.
