9780140270747: Border Crossing

Border Crossing is Pat Barker's unflinching novel of darkness, evil and society. When Tom Seymour, a child psychologist, plunges into a river to save a young man from drowning, he unwittingly reopens a chapter from his past he'd hoped to forget. For Tom already knows Danny Miller. When Danny was ten Tom helped imprison him for the killing of an old woman. Now out of prison with a new identity, Danny has some questions - questions he thinks only Tom can answer. Reluctantly, Tom is drawn back into Danny's world - a place where the border between good and evil, innocence and guilt is blurred and confused. But when Danny's demands on Tim become extreme, Tom wonders whether he has crossed a line of his own - and in crossing it, can he ever go back? 'Brilliantly crafted. Unflinching yet sensitive, this is a dark story expertly told' Daily Mail 'A tremendous piece of writing, sad and terrifying. It keeps you reading, exhausted and blurry-eyed, until 2am' Independent on Sunday 'Resolutely unsensational but disquieting . . . Barker probes not only the mysteries of 'evil' but society's horrified and incoherent response to it' Guardian 'Rich, challenging, surprising, breathtaking' The Times

Review:

"It's her canny feel for the psyche's ambiguous meanderings, more than plot twists, that generates most of the thrills . . . This author creates an atmosphere of menace worthy of a Joyce Carol Oates."-Dan Cryer, "Newsday" "Barker soars to new heights with this harrowing, contemporary study of fate tainted by the stench of evil."-Robert Allen Papinchak, "USA Today" "Barker creates a sense of menace worth of Ian McEwan . . . "Border Crossing" is replete with sharp, expressive exchanges, hard poetry, and as many enigmas as implacable truths."-Kerry Field, "The Atlantic Monthly" "Barker writes with compelling urgency-"Border Crossing" is to be read in one sitting."-Joan Mellen, "The Baltimore Sun" "Exhilerating moral exploration, and prose as naked and jolting as an unwrapped live wire."-Richard Eder, "The New York Times Book Review" "Pat barker understands the dynamics of psychic and shutdown as well as any writer living . . . In "Bo
