'Those who read or listen to our stories see everything as though through a lens. This lens is the secret of narration, and it is ground anew in every story, ground between the temporal and the timeless ...In our brief mortal lives, we are grinders of these lenses'. When John Berger wrote this apparently unclassifiable book, it was to become a sensation, translated into nine languages and indelible from the minds of those who read it. This stunning work is a shoebox filled with delicate love letters containing poetry and thoughts on mortality, art, love and absence, capturing moments in time that hover above Berger's surprising landscapes. From his lyrical description of the works of Caravaggio and profound explorations of death and immigration to the sight of some lilac at dusk in the mountains, this is a beautiful and most intimate response to the world around us.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Berger is a writer one demands to know more about ... He has an intriguing and powerful mind and talent' New York Times 'He handles thoughts the way an artist handles paint. His mind is spattered with colour ... his writing has a physical reality' The Times 'There is a great stillness in Berger's prose. But after a few pages, his statements start to sing and go on singing' New Republic 'John Berger is genius invisible. His life's work is synonymous with the creation of unforgettable living portraits' Scotsman
