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.

Reviews

"An exquisitely written and constructed novel."--Sunday Times

"Wrought with a miniaturist's precision."--New York Times

"John Berger has given us an exquisite thing. This is a book of controlled rage sculpted with tools of tenderness and a searing political vision."--Arundhati Roy

"From A to X is one of the most tender and poignant books I have read for many years. Its power rests in its economy of means, its account of enduring love surviving oppression. It demonstrates that however foul the forces oppressing us, love and the human spirit are indestructible."--Harold Pinter

"The record of one restless, committed, brilliant consciousness; a late showcase of astonishing range and depth, which should be read as an epic poem or lyrical essay as much as a novel."--Melissa Benn, Independent
