London, 1918. Billy Prior is working for Intelligence in the Ministry of Munitions. But his private encounters with women and men pacifists, objectors, homosexuals conflict with his duties as a soldier, and it is not long before his sense of himself fragments and breaks down. 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 wish him to be...
 
The Eye in the Door is a heart-rending study of the contradictions of war and of those forced to live through it.
