An art teacher falls in love then goes to fight in France during the First World War
Life Class is the first novel in Pat Barker's Life Class Trilogy - a powerful and unforgettable story of art and war
Spring, 1914. The students at the Slade School of Art gather in Henry Tonks' studio for his life-drawing class. But for Paul Tarrant the class is troubling, underscoring his own uncertainty about making a mark on the world.
When war breaks out and the army won't take Paul, he enlists in the Belgian Red Cross just as he and fellow student Elinor Brooke admit their feelings for one another.
Amidst the devastation in Ypres, Paul comes to see the world anew - but have his experiences changed him completely?
