A Jar of Wild Flowers: Essays in Celebration of John Berger

£10.99   paperback  Zed Books Ltd (2016)

A Jar of Wild Flowers: Essays in Celebration of John Berger by Yasmin Gunaratnam (Editor) Edited by Yasmin Gunaratnam with Amarjit Chandan Contributors include Ali Smith, Julie Christie, Sally Potter, Ram Rahman, Nick Thorpe, Hsiao-Hung Pai and others.

"John Berger has made the world a better place to live in. These essays tell us how he succeeded in that task."
(Arundhati Roy)
In this collection of essays on the work of, and conversations with, John Berger, thirty-seven of his friends, artistic collaborators and followers come together to form the first truly international and cross-cultural celebration of his interventions.
 
Berger has for decades, through his poetic humanism, brought together geographically, historically and socially disparate subjects. His work continues to throw out lifelines across genres, times and types of experience, opening up radical questions about the meaning of belonging and of community. In keeping with this spirit and in celebration of Berger, the short essays in A Jar of Wild Flowers challenge us all to take the brave step from limited sympathy to extended generosity.
 
With contributions from Ali Smith, Julie Christie, Sally Potter, Ram Rahman, Jean Mohr, Nick Thorpe, Hsiao-Hung Pai and many others.
