First Quick Review for Goodreads

<a href="And Our Faces, My Heart, Brief as PhotosAnd Our Faces, My Heart, Brief as Photos by John Berger

This was an accidental find for me in a secondhand bookshop. On first reading I thought it was disturbing and rather fragmented. It wasn’t the first John Berger book I’ve read, so I felt challenged and gave it a second read. Then a third. Every once in a while I keep going back to it because it continues to draw me in. There is sadness, longing, rebirth, an all-embracing sense of the fragile world we find ourselves in this work that is laid out like big pieces of a puzzle that do not seem to interlock easily.
