G

Ausgezeichnet mit dem Booker Prize 1972

G., a child born in uncertain circumstances, grows up to be character veering dangerously between indifference to the outside world and moments of personal intimacy. Known only by the abstract letter G., this deviant and insatiable character ventures into energetic sexual exploits and embarks upon a voyage of oblique maturity. His journey through early nineteenth-century Europe, tainted by various tender and sordid encounters with women, is a fragmentary and poignant portrait of devastating desires amidst a backdrop of historical and political turmoil. G. is a novel of exploration - into the fragility of the self, of precarious sexuality and the delicate divide between the individual and the sweeping currents of the world at large. An eloquent and disturbing search for unity in an ultimately fragmented humanity.

Portrait

John Berger was born in London in 1926.

Amongst his outstanding studies of art and photography are Another Way of Telling, The Success and Failure of Picasso, Titian: Nymph and Shepherd (with Katya Berger) and the internationally acclaimed Ways of Seeing. He lives and works in a small village in the French Alps, the setting for his trilogy Into Their Labours (Pig Earth, Once in Europa and Lilac and Flag). His collection of essays The Shape of a Pocket was published in 2001.
