The Eye in the Door
London, 1918. Billy Prior works for Intelligence in the Ministry of Munitions. But his private encounters with women and men, pacifists, objectors and homosexuals conflict with his duties as a soldier, and before long his sense of himself fragments. Forced to consult the man who helped him before - army psychiatrist William Rivers - Prior must confront his inability to be the dutiful soldier his superiors require him to be . . . The second book in the Regenerationseries.
