A Fortunate Man: The Story of a Country Doctor

by John Berger and Jean Mohr
£9.99   paperback  Canongate Books Ltd (2016)

A Fortunate Man: The Story of a Country Doctor by John Berger and Jean Mohr In 1966 John Berger spent three months in the Forest of Dean shadowing an English country GP, John Sassall.
 
Sassall is a fortunate man - his work occupies and fulfils him, he lives amongst the patients he treats, the line between his life and his work is happily blurred.
 
In A Fortunate Man, Berger's text and the photography of Jean Mohr reveal with extraordinary intensity the life of a remarkable man. It is a portrait of one selfless individual and the rural community for which he became the hub. Drawing on psychology, biography and medicine A Fortunate Man is a portrait of sacrifice. It is also a profound exploration of what it means to be a doctor, to serve a community and to heal.
 
With a new introduction by novelist and GP, Gavin Francis.
