Review:

I admire and love John Berger's books. He writes about what is important, not just interesting-in contemporary English letters, he seems to be peerless; not since Lawrence has there been a writer who offers such attentiveness to the sensual world with responsiveness to the imperatives of conscience. He is a wonderful artist and thinker. --Susan Sontag

About the Author:

John Berger's many books include Ways of Seeing, the fiction trilogy Into Their Labours, Here Is Where We Meet, the Booker-prize winning novel G, Hold Everything Dear and the Man Booker longlisted From A to X. Jean Mohr's longstanding collaboration with John Berger has produced five books, including A Fortunate Man. Among his other works are After the Last Sky (with Edward Said) and, most recently, Side by Side or Face to Face. He lives in Geneva, Switzerland.
