"In contemporary letters John Berger seems to me peerless; not since Lawrence has there been a writer who offers such attentiveness to the sensual world with responsiveness to the imperatives of conscience."--Susan Sontag

A Fortunate Man is one of those rare books that you can't forget, and that each time you reflect upon causes you gasp for air because of your good fortune in having read it. The prose is easy, gentle, and very interesting, but in the end it shakes you to the core, seducing you into seeing the world with wiser eyes, and to face up to looking at difficult social questions with courage and humility. A book anyone with the ability to ponder will come to again and again.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
