About the Author

Eric Arthur Blair (1903-1950), better known by his pen-name, George Orwell, was born in India, where his father worked for the Civil Service. An author and journalist, Orwell was one of the most prominent and influential figures in twentieth-century literature. His unique political allegory Animal Farm was published in 1945, and it was this novel, together with the dystopia of Nineteen Eighty-Four (1949), which brought him world-wide fame. His novels and non-fiction include Burmese Days, Down and Out in Paris and London, The Road to Wigan Pier and Homage to Catalonia.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful and Often Brutal Insight Into Its Time Period
By Connor Burnett on August 20, 2020
I was brought to the attention of this book by the recommendation of Anthony Bourdain made in his book, "Kitchen Confidential" A good deal of Orwell's experience in the kitchen and the way that it is structurally written here, would inspire the same structure that Bourdain used. I ended up loving this book because of its depiction of the time period. So much was going on in the world during Orwell's life and his viewpoint in seeing how everyday people were living in it is certainly historic. The absolute ends that people would make just to survive day to day was incredibly gripping as the pages keep turning. I found myself incredibly liking George Orwell himself, as he comes off as a very likable narrator. Definitely a book worth reading.
