Each issue we’ll be discussing a classic of queer literature. Read along and join the conversation on Twitter at @WinqMagazine. Th is issue it’s Regeneration by Pat Barker

Inspired by true events, Regeneration is the highly regarded First World War novel by Pat Barker. Originally published in 1991, it’s the first book in a trilogy which also includes The Eye in the Door and The Ghost Road, which won the Booker Prize in 1995, (although many people believe the Prize was in effect awarded to this exceptional series as a whole).

Regeneration cuts through any sense of the First World War as a remote and distant abstraction; it’s charged with powerful themes and visceral imagery that seem all the more pertinent during the current centenary commemorations. It raises profound questions not only about the ethics of warfare but also about class, masculinity, sexuality and honour, as well as exploring the ongoing and inescapable impact of trauma.
