feat of literary revisionism that should be on the Man Booker longlistWhy isnt Pat Barkers The Silence of the Girls on this years Man Booker longlist There are always going to be contentious omissions, I know, but Barkers not only a veteranshe won in 1995 for The Ghost Road, the final volume of her magnificent First World War set Regeneration trilogythis latest work is an impressive feat of literary revisionism that reminds us that there are as many ways to tell a story as there are people involvedthis is a story about the very real cost of wars waged by men the brutal reality of conquest and slavery In seeing a legend differently, Barker also makes us re think history The Independent In The Silence of the Girls, Barker now gives a voice to the voicelessIt is not generally known that the omission of Pat Barkers Regeneration from the 1991 Booker shortlist by the all male panel of judges was the trigger for the foundation of the Orange now Womens Prize Barkers omission from this years Booker longlist is a decision equally lamentable, for The Silence of the Girls is a book that will be read in generations to come Amanda Craig, Daily Telegraph This book weaves strands from across Barkers work, foregrounding female experience on a vividly evoked battleground The Sunday Times The Silence of the Girlsis brilliantfascinating, riveting and blood chilling in its matter of fact attitude toward war and those who are its spoils I loved the book for its craftsmanship, as well is its wonderful evocation of the ancient world and the not so ancient minds of the people inhabiting it Diana Gabaldon In graceful prose, Man Booker Prize winner Barker, renowned for her historical fiction trilogies, offers a compelling take on the events of The Iliad, allowing Briseis a first person perspective Briseis is flawlessly drawn as Barker wisely avoids the pitfall so many authors stumble into headlong, namely, giving her an anachronistic modern feminist viewpoint The army camp, the warrior mindset, the horrors of battle, the silence of the girlsBarker makes it all convincing and very powerful Recommended on the highest order Booklist Theres a bluntness to Barkers prose that feels appropriate to this tale of womens fates during wartime But if it insists on the importance of bearing witness, its also about choosing life Mail On Sunday Wryly observant and wholly cognizant Barker s retelling of some of the most famous events of TheIliadfeels strangely relevant to todaydisplaced peoples, war refugees, abandoned women and children, sexual violenceand assures us that women s voices will be silent no longer BookPage Amid the recent slew of rewritings of the great Greek myths and classics Barkers stands out for its force of purpose and earthy compassion Barker puts a searing twist on The Iliad to show us what the worst fate can be The Times The arrival of The Silence of the Girlscouldn t be apropos Barker has a knack for capturing the voices of women in everyday life Publishers Weekly Its magnificent final section cant help but make you reflect on the cultural underpinnings of misogyny, the women throughout history who have been told by men to forget their trauma You feel you are in the hands of a writer at the height of her powers, her only priority to enlarge the story Evening Standard A lot of these re imaginings fall flat, but Barkers new novel, The Silence of the Girls, is superb It is as beautifully written as it is brutal in describing the blood soaked horrors of war Its out next month and should have been put on the Man Booker longlist Silly judges Robbie Millen, The Times If this book doesnt win all the awards I mean all ALL of them it will be a travesty Quite the most incredible thing Ive read this year and Ive read a lot of great books Classic storytelling, amazing characters And such a lot to say about then and now Circe was a wonderful feminist romp and I loved it, but The Silence of the Girls is something else all together For me, this is Pat Barkers Handmaids Tale moment Sam Baker, author of The Woman Who Ran Barkers innovation rests on the female perspective Here she gives Briseis a wry voice and watchful nature The Silence of the Girls hums with intelligence Kirkus Reviews An extraordinary novel and the current debate about power and control in sexual relationships makes it a very timely one If this doesn t make every serious literary prize shortlist, I ll be very surprised Alice OKeefe, The Bookseller Pat Barker was born in Yorkshire and began her literary career in her forties, when she took a
