One is Lieutenant Billy Prior, cured of shell shock by famed psychologist Dr. William Rivers at Craiglockhart War Hospital, and determined to return to the front in France even as the war enters its final ferocious phase in the late summer of 1918.

The other is Dr. Rivers himself, consumed by the medical challenge and moral dilemma of restoring men to health so that they can be sent back to the battlefields and almost certain death. Billy Prior is a working-class man on the rise, a temporary gentleman, who inhabits a sexual, social, and moral no-mans-land.

His sexual encounters with both women and men are tinged with a cynical fatalism that the war has engendered. Still, he is eager to join a fellow Craiglockhart graduate, the poet Wilfred Owen, in France in time to participate in the great English offensive, the one last push intended to redeem all the shining heroism and senseless slaughter that has gone before.
