The Eye in the Door is the second novel in Pat Barker's classic Regeneration trilogy.

WINNER OF THE 1993 GUARDIAN FICTION PRIZE.

London, 1918. Billy Prior is working for Intelligence in the Ministry of Munitions. But his private encounters with women and men - pacifists, objectors, homosexuals - conflict with his duties as a soldier, and it is not long before his sense of himself fragments and breaks down. Forced to consult the man who helped him before - army psychiatrist William Rivers - Prior must confront his inability to be the dutiful soldier his superiors wish him to be ...

The Eye in the Door is a heart-rending study of the contradictions of war and of those forced to live through it.

'Every bit as waveringly intense and intelligent as its predecessor'Sunday Times

'Startlingly original . . . spellbinding'Sunday Telegraph

'Gripping, moving, profoundly intelligent . . . bursting with energy and darkly funny'Independent on Sunday

Review:

Gripping, moving, beautifully constrcted and profoundly intelligent ( Independent on Sunday)

From the Back Cover:

The Eye in the Door was the richly deserving winner of the 1993 Guardian Fiction Prize, the second volume in Pat Barker's brilliant Regeneration Trilogy. Written with immense power, it is the story not just of one young man suffering from the trauma of war, but from a generation, condemned to the unending slaughter of the trenches, and all the charged agony of class and gender that had its own bitter harvest. But for all the pain she portrays, Barker's novel, with its wry humour and exquisite observation, explodes with life.
