Author Info
John Berger
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.
