About the Author:

Pat Barker was born in Yorkshire and began her literary career in her forties, when she took a short writing course taught by Angela Carter. Encouraged by Carter to continue writing and exploring the lives of working class women, she sent her fiction out to publishers. Thirty-five years later, she has published fifteen novels, including her masterful Regeneration Trilogy, been made a CBE for services to literature, and won awards including the Guardian Fiction Prize and the UK's highest literary honour, the Booker Prize. She lives in Durham and her new novel, The Silence of the Girls, will be published by Hamish Hamilton in August 2018.

From AudioFile:

When Billy Prior returns to France for the fourth time in September of 1918, it's like coming home. He does so against everyone's advice, but when he watches the sun rise slowly after the Battle of Joncourt, he realizes why he couldn't have stayed back. And mysteriously, so do we. Peter Firth's reading captures perfectly Barker's tragic mix of pity and apotheosis. An accomplished British actor, Firth is at once the cynical, but savvy, Prior, the stammering Professor Dodgson (Lewis Carroll), soft-spoken Dr. Rivers, all with transparent ease. His unerring sense of character and tone recreates the bitter irony of that last push in 1918 when so many died so needlessly. For Barker, these last dead, though they sour the trumpet of victory, are war's only winners. At the end Firth's silence becomes eloquent. P.E.F. An AUDIOFILE Earphones Award winner.
