9780140270754: Double Vision

Double Vision is Pat Barker's thought-provoking Booker Prize-winning novel of modern warfare.

Provocative, intense and deeply moving, Double Vision is a powerful story of one man's quest to find redemption amidst the horror of twenty-first-century war. Returning to Afghanistan after his photographer friend is killed by a sniper, war reporter Stephen Sharkey seeks release from his nightmares in an England seemingly at peace with itself.

Questioning man's inhumanity to man both abroad and at home, and whether love really can be the great redeemer, Double Vision is a searing novel of conflict in modern times.

'Full of brooding tension. Barker is one of our most significant contemporary novelists' Daily Telegraph

'Barker writes superbly. The reader is drawn on, from page to page' Economist

'Barker has a quite extraordinary ability to combine complexity and clarity and to make both seem parts of the same whole' Sunday Times

'The characters grab hold at the beginning and never loosen their grip. Barker holds us by the sheer beauty of her writing' Financial Times

Pat Barker was born in 1943.

Review:

"A story that is both terrifying and fascinating....Wholly engrossing."--Neil Gordon, "New York Times Book Review""One doesn't often find the caliber of writing displayed in Barker's latest, a compulsively readable novel."--Joanne Wilinson, "Booklist""As briskly taut as a thriller and, at the same time, a deeply thoughtful consideration of how our lives are changed by sweeping historical tragedy and everyday acts of violence...We keep paging rapidly through the novel, even as we pause to admire the trenchant reflections."--Francine Prose, " O" Magazine

About the Author:
