Anuk Arudpragasam, author of the 2021 Booker Prize-shortlisted A Passage North, on why he thinks John Berger’s 1972 Booker Prize-winning novel G. is ‘hugely impressive’.
John Berger was born in London. In 1962, he left Britain permanently, to live in a small village in the French Alps.
His acclaimed works of fiction and non-fiction include the seminal Ways of Seeing and the novel G, which won the Booker Prize in 1972. He died in 2017.
