Visionary thinker John Berger and Turkish artist Selçuk Demirel came together for the last time to create this precious little volume about time. What Time Is It? is a playful meditation on the illusory nature of hours, but Berger suggests that time is turbulent. It expands and contracts according to the intensity of the lived moment. In this beautiful essay in pictures, Berger posits the idea that by experiencing the extraordinary, we can defy time itself. Introduced by Maria Nadotti and fully illustrated throughout by the brilliant Selçuk Demirel.

Review:

Praise for John Berger and Selçuk Demirel

"John Berger writes about what is important, not just interesting. In contemporary English letters he seems to me peerless; not since Lawrence has there been a writer who offers such attentiveness to the sensual world."--Susan Sontag

"In his ceaselessly inventive work, Selçuk often uses parts of the body in ways that are characteristically Turkish...as if the comedy of the human condition were there in the human body, in the melancholy of anatomy."--John Berger

Praise for Cataract

"I love this small book of intricate insight." --Michael Ondaatje

In contemporary English letters John Berger seems to me peerless. --Susan Sontag

I love this little book of intricate insight --I love this little book of intricate insight

Book Description Notting Hill Editions, United Kingdom, 2019. Hardback. Condition: New. Selcuk Demirel (illustrator). Language: English. Brand new Book. "Patience, patience, because the great movements of history have always begun in those small parenthesis that we call 'in the meantime.'" --John Berger The last book that John Berger wrote was this precious little volume about time titled What Time Is It?, now posthumously published for the first time in English by Notting Hill Editions. Berger died before it was completed, but the text has been assembled and illustrated by his longtime collaborator and friend Sel uk Demirel, and has an introduction by Maria Nadotti. What Time Is It? is a profound and playful meditation on the illusory nature of time. Berger, the great art critic and Man Booker Prize-winning author, reflects on what time has come to mean to us in modern life. Our perception of time assumes a uniform and ceaseless passing of time, yet time is turbulent. It expands and contracts according to the intensity of the lived moment. We talk of time "saved" in a hundred household appliances; time, like money, is exchanged for the content it lacks. Berger posits the idea that time can lengthen lifetimes once we seize the present moment. "What-is-to-come, what-is-to-be-gained empties what-is.". Seller Inventory # AAJ9781912559145
