Novelist, draughtsman, film-maker, essayist and critic – John Berger is one of the major European intellectuals of our time.

In 1972 he won the James Tait Black Memorial Prize and the Booker Prize for his novel G. In 2009 he was awarded the Golden PEN award by London PEN for a lifetime’s contribution to literature. His Collected Poems was published in 2014.
