The Eye in the Door is the winner of the Guardian Fiction Prize and the second book in Pat Barker's acclaimed Regeneration trilogy.

London, 1918, and Billy Prior is working for Intelligence in the Ministry of Munitions. But his private encounters with pacifists, objectors, and homosexuals force him to confront his inability to be the dutiful soldier his superiors wish him to be. Pat Barker's The Eye in the Door is a heart-rending study of the contradictions of war and of those forced to live through it.
