The award-winning Regeneration trilogy established Pat Barkers reputation as a novelist able to revive the traumas of war at the beginning of the 20th century.

But her most recent fiction (Another World and, now, Border Crossing) revisits the terrain of her first novels (Union Street, Blow Your House Down). The dismal, if commonplace, violence of family life, violence between husbands and wives, fathers and children, children and children is explored alongside the more sensational story of a young man, Danny, whom, tracking down the psychologist who helped to convict him for the murder he committed as a child, wants to talk about how impossible it was to leave the past behind.

A tense, and seductive, relation develops between Danny and Tom Seymour, a professional forced to make his own return to a past in which he has played a defining part in someone elses life. As the brutal details of Dannys crime emerge, Barker confronts the possibilities of cure through time, through speech, through the attention given by one man to another. Danny is a man who is very, very good at getting people to step across that invisible border, a character who draws attention to the pain, and helplessness, of having been a child.

But Border Crossing also refuses to lose sight of his victim. The mutilated body of Lizzie Parks makes a claim on Danny, on Barker and on her readers as this novel probes the relation between Danny and Tom for the only possible good outcome of an irreparable act. --Vicky Lebeau
