by John Berger
Publisher's Description
John Berger's observations on the layers of meaning within the representation of a photograph provide an unequalled richness in his fictional writings. His writings reveal lives and experiences as moments and visions--like the eyes of a photographer--within the lives of travellers, artists, and prisoners.
Amazon.com Review
As well known for his art criticism as his novels, which include Pig Earth and To the Wedding, John Berger brings a visual acumen to his prose. And as a Marxist living among French peasantry, his politics inform his writing as well. The three--visual art, Marxist politics, poetic fiction--combine in these stories, or rather "memory visions," in a most effective way. The resulting alloy is larger than the elements, a beautiful and lyrical collection of narrative strands, frugal and melancholoy in tone.
