Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"Five love stories, both sad and happy, set among the Alpine farms and villages of France, told with an engaging, unsentimental simplicity: such a statement would be a true summary of John Berger's newest fiction, Once in Europa. However, one could write equally true summaries of Flaubert's Three Tales or Joyce's Dubliners, and I believe it is with just such masterworks that Berger's collection deserves comparison. To term Once in Europa 'simple'
means that it burns immediately to the essential: if there are fewer complexities in the rural world Berger portrays, the passions of that world seem not less true but purer and more intense for the lack. Most readers will feel that they are seeing anew a land where they once lived but have long since abandoned in exile. Berger proved his mastery of an experimental style in his earlier novel, G. Here he writes with— again—a ravaging simplicity. Never has 'the right word' been pursued with more care nor achieved with finer effect."
