Used book Another World by Pat Barker is about the power of old wounds to leak into the present. The interlinked plots of her novel press the point home: our central narrator is Nick, a well-meaning Newcastle teacher. But much of the novel centres on his grandfather, Geordie, who is deeply disturbed by his memories of the trenches, where he thinks he killed his own brother. Then there is the Victorian ghost that flits through Nick's house, which turns out to be the apparition of a young girl who was once suspected of killing her brother. And there is Nick's stepson, Gareth, who, in a reprise of all these past traumas, becomes inexplicably aggressive towards his baby brother.

Plagued by nightmarish memories of the trenches where he saw his brother die, Nick's grandfather Gordie lays dying as Nick struggles to keep the peace in his increasingly fractious home. As Nick's suburban family loses control over their world, Nick begins to learn his grandfather's buried secrets and comes to understand the power of old wounds to leak into the present.

As a study of the power of memory and loss, this novel conveys with extraordinary intensity the ways in which the violent past returns to haunt and distort the present.
