From the Back Cover
Pat Barker's 'Regeneration Trilogy', – ' Regeneration, The Eye In The Door' and ' The Ghost Road' – interweaving fact and fiction, characters historical and imagined, wry humour and harrowing observation, tells not so much the familiar story of the horror of the trenches, but rather of the psychological damage the Great War inflicted not only on the nation's doomed youth but on that entire generation which also served.
The trilogy has won Pat Barker the 1993 'Guardian Fiction Prize', the 1995 Booker Prize and acclaim as the Booksellers' Association Author of the Year.
Paul McGann, the star of 'The Monocled Mutineer, Withnail and I' and 'The Hanging Gale', and a reader of rare nuance and subtlety, gives a quietly understated performance in keeping with Barker's literary style.
Contains 'Regeneration, The Eye in the Door' and 'The Ghost Road'
