Four books that changed Pamela Hart

Pamela Hart is the author of The Soldier’s Wife, The War Bride, A Letter from Italy, and The Desert Nurse. As Pamela Freeman, she's written children’s fiction, epic fantasy, crime fiction and children’s poetry.

One of four books that changed the author, as shared at the Sydney Morning Herald:

John Berger

This was a set text for my first year of uni. It changed how I looked at things. That was its aim – as Berger said, it "wanted to question some of the assumptions made about European art". In doing so, it introduced this convent-school-educated 17-year-old to concepts such as "the male gaze", "the phallic image", and how advertising actually worked. It made me a critical consumer of all media, including books.
