Summary
An intimate look at the life and work of England's greatest novelist and political essayist. George Orwell's most celebrated work, "1984," and the prescient vision it contains of a society governed by Big Brother predates the constant monitoring of people and data we are familiar with today by almost 70 years. But his life was every bit as fascinating and forward-looking as his books. Orwell studied at Eton, joined the police in Burma, fought in the Spanish Civil War, fiercely opposed Stalinism, and lived in London's slums while working as a journalist. With extra illustrations by a team of artists including Annie Goetzinger, Juanjo Guarnido, Enki Bilal, Manu Larcenet, Blutch, and Andre Juillard, Pierre Christin and Sebastian Verdier's Orwell offers readers an intimate yet definitive portrait of our greatest political writer
