Critical Perspectives on Pat Barker brings together an international roster of scholars who pay detailed attention to the work and career of this prizewinning British writer, providing critical insight into each of her nine novels, from Union Street (1982) through the Regeneration trilogy (1991-95) to Double Vision (2003). The eighteen essays in the volume are organized into five sections: Writing Working-Class Women, Dialogue under Pressure, Men at War, The Talking Cure, and Regenerating the Wasteland. Taken individually, each of the essays yields a variety of insights into Barker's fictions; taken as a whole, the collection provides a fresh and timely overview of Barker's oeuvre and her creative exploration of society.
