A must read! Each essay is packed with such eloquence and depth that it is hard not to reread them several times, as one would do with poetry, just to make sure the full intent of the author is grasped.

This is a must for lovers of contemporary literature, devotees of current events and modern political thought.

A beautiful piece of literature.

This was the first Joe Dillard book I read and I will read others. I found the character well-developed and believable. His internal struggles with his own limitations and the varying degrees of imperfections in other people and the legal system were clearly defined. I ended up liking and respecting Joe. The plot movement was easy to follow without being predictable. The story caused me to think about the people and their character even after I finished the book. A very good experience.

Berger's prose is beautiful and as he moves from poets to rage and back to poets in these essays on desperation and suffering in Palestine and our world in general, I was grateful all over again that he writes. Berger is one of the few radical English language writers who can mix literature, art and politics so directly and honestly. Don't read this if you don't want to confront reality and think.

One of the wisest voices of our time, John Berger, has pieced together 17 thoughts or, 'dispatches'(with its military connotations) about the post 9/11 environment which we now, all share. For most of his long life, Berger has sided with the powerless and dispossessed, even taking the step of quitting a high profile career in London, where he seemed to be at the cutting edge of art criticism with his ground-breaking,'Ways of Seeing' made for BBC T.V and never out of print in book form.He relocated in a peasant village in rural France, to immerse himself in what would form the subject of some of his most compelling writing.There has been no diminishing of power in his thought or eloquence as he gains his senior years. The Palestine issue, in particular, gets coverage. And he returne to the pitiless paintings of Francis Bacon for what I suspect will be his final published view of him. And there is a re-contexturalising of the great Piero Pasolini; Berger having just watched his 'La Rabbia'(how and where can I ever get to see this?). I guess, I wish the collection had more in it. But what is there is potent, direct and as usual, poetic. Which leads me to its title; not one of John's pieces, but the publication in its opening pages of a very beautiful poem by one, Gareth Evans. Have a squizz! For more on art visit>rodmoss.com

allegro
I love reading John Berger. He is an original thinker.
I don't always agree with his point of view but I love to read it.
This book was very moving at times but also very enigmatic. I think
that Mr. Berger is such a sensitive man that art criticism offers a safer space,
than political discourse,to provide a more succinct point of view.
I felt when reading his book the human tragedy that is going on
now in the middle east is so hard to believe even when one is a witness to it.

i guess there should always be a perspective from the french countryside to balance out fox.
