Virago have published three books by Pat Barker as modern classics. She may be more familiar to readers as the writer of the impressive Regeneration trilogy, the final book of which (The ghost road) won the Booker prize. These three titles are essentially portraits of working class life, from a female perspective, and are all fascinating reads. It's been a while since I've read them, so I will have to content myself with showing you their covers, and reminding myself that I would like to pick them up again one day. They've each been published twice, in a newer green edition, and a non green edition.
