Pat Barker (2012 event)

Her books include the highly acclaimed Regeneration trilogy: Regeneration (made into a film of the same name), The Eye in the Door (winner of the Guardian Fiction Prize) and The Ghost Road (winner of the Booker Prize). She came to Edinburgh to unveil her latest story, Toby's Room, the sequel to her acclaimed novel Life Class. Toby is 'missing, believed killed' on the battlefields of France, but his sister begins to question how he died – and why. Pat Barker's unforgettable stories highlight the emotional traumas of the First World War and her new book is a dark, compelling story of human desire, wartime horror and the power of friendship. She discusses her work with acclaimed broadcaster and journalist Allan Little in this event, recorded live at the 2012 Edinburgh International Book Festival.
