Jan 11, 2018 Darcy Moore rated it it was amazing
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.
