Published by Nodens Books.

Going Home is one of Barry Pain's late shorter novels. It mixes realism and fantasy with some mild social satire. Plotwise, the book follows young Dora Muse, who meets a boy who has wings and who is called Eagle. They inevitably fall in love, and Going Home is their story.

According to Pain himself, writing in 1924, it was well-received by critics but sold poorly (this fact is corroborated by the book's rarity today). Yet Pain still cited it as his best book. And Pain's friend and sometime collaborator, James Blythe, noted in his own copy: "In my opinion this is Barry's best book up to the present."
