From the Publisher:
An impressionistic essay written in the spirit of Montaigne documents the influential art critic and author's struggles with vision-compromising cataracts and the transformative effect of cataract removal operations, which reawakened abilities and illuminated the degree to which people adapt to sensory loss.
Before becoming a writer, Berger studied art and worked as a painter; he also held jobs in television. He has written several well-received novels including G, for which he won the Booker Prize in 1972. (In his acceptance speech, Berger denounced the sponsors' colonial past and declared that he would donate half of his prize money to the Black Panthers.) A lifelong leftist, anti-globalism activist, and proselytizer for a more primitive lifestyle, Berger left England in 1974 to live and farm in the French Alps, in a barn with no indoor plumbing. Berger has been married twice and has a daughter and two sons.
