Darcy Moore
This is still an excellent biographical introduction to George Orwell even though it was published in 1981, some time before his extensive archive was readily available. The photographs are well-chosen and many of them are relatively rare. The late Peter Lewis, former literary editor at The Daily Mail, is particularly good at seeing Orwell clearly and explaining his judgements. Succinct, penetrating and readable. Highly recommended.

Quite an interesting person. The last pages were quite enlightning about 1984. The part about the Animal Farm expresses a lot also.

An older, but nice short biography of one of my favorite authors. He was a bit unusual and detached in personality, but his sympathies and efforts were with the people.
