Pat Barker is one of the UK’s foremost novelists.  After the publication of her first novel, Union Street, in 1982, she appeared on Granta’s list of the twenty ‘Best British Novelists,’ alongside Martin Amis, Salman Rushdie, and Julian Barnes. Her award-winning novels about the First World War, The Regeneration Trilogy, was followed by Life Class (2007), which charts the lives of young artists studying at the Slade School of Art in at the outset of the war. She is pursuing this interest in her current novel which concerns the artist-surgeon, Henry Tonks, whose work is featured in the DLI exhibition, About Face.
