George Orwell: A Life in Letters
Available in Stock
From his schooldays to his early death, George Orwell chronicled the dramatic events of his turbulent life in a profusion of powerful letters. This chronological selection, featuring many previously unpublished letters, forms the autobiography he never wrote. In missives to family, friends and fellow writers such as TS Eliot, Arthur Koestler, Stephen Spender and Cyril Connolly, he reports from war-ravaged Barcelona, Morocco, and the Isle of Jura, where he wrote Nineteen Eighty-Four, with characteristic insight, precision and dry humour.
