About the Author:

Storyteller, novelist, essayist, screenwriter, dramatist and critic, John Berger is one of the most internationally influential writers of the last fifty years. His 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, the Man Booker–longlisted From A to X, and A Seventh Man.

Jean Mohr‘s longstanding collaboration with John Berger has produced five books, including A Seventh Man and A Fortunate Man. Among his other works are After the Last Sky (with Edward Said) and Side by Side or Face to Face. He lives in Geneva, Switzerland.

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
