    DescriptionThe Ghost Road is the final instalment in Pat Barker's Regeneration trilogy. Winner of the 1995 Booker Prize. 1918, the closing months of the war. Army psychiatrist William Rivers is increasingly concerned for the men who have been in his care - particularly Billy Prior, who is about to return to combat in France with young poet Wilfred Owen. As Rivers tries to make sense of what, if anything, he has done to help these injured men, Prior and Owen await the final battles in a war that has decimated a generation...The Ghost Road is the Booker Prize-winning account of the devastating final months of the First World War. "An extraordinary tour de force. I'm convinced that the trilogy will win recognition as one of the few real masterpieces of late twentieth-century British fiction". (Jonathan Coe). "Powerful, deeply moving". (Barry Unsworth, Sunday Times). "Harrowing, original, unforgettable". (Independent). "A triumph". (Sunday Times). Pat Barker was born in 1943. Her books include the highly acclaimed Regeneration trilogy, comprising Regeneration, which has been filmed, The Eye in the Door, which won the Guardian Fiction Prize, and The Ghost Road, which won the Booker Prize. The trilogy featured the Observer's 2012 list of the ten best historical novels. She is also the author of the more recent novels Another World, Border Crossing, Double Vision, Life Class, and Toby's Room. She lives in Durham.
