John Berger has revolutionised our understanding of art, politics, language, media, society and everyday experience since his landmark book and TV series Ways of Seeing over forty years ago.
As the internationally influential critic, novelist, film-maker, dramatist and storyteller enters his ninetieth year, the latest Verso podcast in collaboration with the London Review Bookshop celebrates his life and work.
Gareth Evans is joined by Tom Overton, editor of Landscapes: John Berger on Art, Yasmin Gunaratnam, editor of A Jar of Wild Flowers, and Mike Dibb, film-maker and director of Ways of Seeing, to explore Berger's art and politics, the evolution of his own way of seeing, and its enduring relevance.
Landscapes: John Berger on Art is 40% off, along with ALL our books by John Berger, until November 6th.

In a wide-ranging conversation for the latest Verso podcast in collaboration with the London Review Bookshop, Mark Greif and Brian Dillon discuss modes of critique and cultural forms, and the role of the intellectual in stripping away the veil of everyday life.
