What to expect

Brought to you by Penguin.

From the Booker Prize-winning and Women’s Prize-shortlisted author of The Silence of the Girls

A powerfully thought-provoking portrait of modern warfare from one of the modern masters of war fiction

Returning to Afghanistan after his photographer friend is killed by a sniper, war reporter Stephen Sharkey seeks release from his nightmares in an England seemingly at peace with itself. Questioning man’s inhumanity to man both abroad and at home, and whether love really can be the great redeemer, Double Vision is a searing novel of conflict in modern times.

‘Barker is one of our most significant contemporary novelists’ Daily Telegraph

‘The characters grab hold at the beginning and never loosen their grip. Barker holds us by the sheer beauty of her writing’ Financial Times

‘Barker has a quite extraordinary ability to combine complexity and clarity and to make both seem parts of the same whole’ Sunday Times
