Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
From Booker Prize winner Pat Barker, a masterful novel that portrays the staggering human cost of the Great War. Admirers of her Regeneration Trilogy as well as fans of Downton Abbey and War Horse will be enthralled.

With Toby’s Room, a sequel to her widely praised previous novel Life Class, the incomparable Pat Barker confirms her place in the pantheon of Britain’s finest novelists. This indelible portrait of a family torn apart by war focuses on Toby Brooke, a medical student, and his younger sister Elinor. Enmeshed in a web of complicated family relationships, Elinor and Toby are close: some might say too close. But when World War I begins, Toby is posted to the front as a medical officer while Elinor stays in London to continue her fine art studies at the Slade, under the tutelage of Professor Henry Tonks. There, in a startling development based in actual fact, Elinor finds that her drafting skills are deployed to aid in the literal reconstruction of those maimed in combat.

One day in 1917, Elinor has a sudden premonition that Toby will not return from France. Three weeks later the family receives a telegram informing them that Toby is “Missing, Believed Killed” in Ypres. However, there is no body, and Elinor refuses to accept the official explanation. Then she finds a letter hidden in the lining of Toby’s uniform; Toby knew he wasn’t coming back, and he implies that fellow soldier Kit Neville will know why.

Toby’s Room
is an eloquent literary narrative of hardship and resilience, love and betrayal, and anguish and redemption. In unflinching yet elegant prose, Pat Barker captures the enormity of the war’s impact—not only on soldiers at the front but on the loved ones they leave behind.

Book Description: Doubleday. 1 Cloth(s), 2012. hard. Book Condition: New. The Booker Prize–winning author of the Regeneration trilogy returns here to the characters she created in Life Class, picking up the strand of art student Elinor Brooke. Within the web of their complicated family relationships, Elinor and her older brother Toby are close; some might say a bit too close. At the outbreak of World War I, Toby is posted to the front as a medical officer, while Elinor employs her artistic skills to help doctors reconstruct the shattered faces of men maimed in combat. Then one day in 1917, Elinor has the sudden premonition that Toby is not coming back—though when the telegram "Missing, believed killed" arrives, she refuses to accept the official report, and goes searching for the truth."Toby's Room takes large risks. It's dark, painful and indelibly grotesque, yet it's also tender. It strains against its own narrative control to create, in the midst of ordinary life, a kind of deformed reality—precisely to illustrate how everything we call 'ordinary' is disfigured by war. And it succeeds brilliantly."—NYTBR 303. Bookseller Inventory # 43139
