G. is a 1972 novel by John Berger. The novel's setting is pre-First World War Europe, and its protagonist, named "G.", is a Don Juan or Casanova-like lover of women who gradually comes to political consciousness after misadventures across the continent. Berger's experimental, non-linear narrative novel won both the James Tait Black Memorial Prize for fiction and the Booker Prize. At the Booker Prize ceremony Berger criticized the sponsor Booker-McConnall for exploiting trade in the Caribbean for the past 130 years. Berger also claimed he would give half of the prize money to the Black Panthers.
