Corker's Freedom

(1964)
A novel by

 
 
From the author of the Booker Prize-winning G. and the extraordinary trilogy Into Their Labours, an early novel, written thirty years ago and published here for the first time. An exhilarating and engrossing novel about the elderly owner of an employment agency whose romantic yearnings and inarticulate dreams propel him into a world of fantasy, Corker's Freedom displays the story-telling magic that is a hallmark of John Berger's highly acclaimed fiction. In this powerfully unsettling tale about the pitfalls of free will, we observe the gradual disintegration of one man's genteel and shabby life as he is driven, over the course of one day, to seek an illusory freedom from the bonds of responsibility. Berger explores the disturbingly gray areas between the private and the public self in a mordantly witty novel, which is always aware of the absurdity that resides in the midst of tragedy.
