George Orwell (1903-1950) served with the Imperial Police in Burma, fought with the Republicans during the Spanish Civil War, and was a member of the Home Guard and a writer for the BBC during World War II. He is the author of some of the most celebrated works of non-fiction and fiction in the English language.
'A wise, compassionate, and illuminating fable.' New York Times 'There are no replacements for George Orwell, just as there are no replacements for a Bernard Shaw or a Mark Twain...he pricked, provoked and badgered lazy minds, delighted those who enjoyed watching an original intelligence at work.' Time Magazine 'A book for everyone and Everyman, its brightness undimmed after fifty years.' -- Ruth Rendell 'Timeless, even transcendent.' -- Christopher Hitchens 'Absolutely first rate.' New Yorker
