Editorial Reviews

Review

"Well-researched and fascinating...Remarkable."—San Francisco Chronicle

"One of the most unusual travelogues to come out of Southeast Asia in some time, and a truer picture of authoritarianism than anyone has written since, perhaps, Orwell himself."—Mother Jones

"[This] mournful, meditative, appealingly idiosyncratic book is a hybrid, an exercise in literary detection but also a political travelogue that uses Burma to explain Prwell, and Orwell—especially the Orwell of Animal Farm and Nineteen Eighty-Four—to explain the miseries of present-day Myanmar (as it is now known)."—The New York Times

"This is one of those rare books, a beautifully crafted account of a journey which actually takes the reader somewhere new and unusual. Emma Larkin did not just go searching for Orwell, she found him. Along the way, she made the chilling discovery that in modern-day Burma, the totalitarian tyrannies he evoked in Nineteen Eighty-Four are horrifyingly alive and well."—Jon Lee Anderson

"Combining literary criticism and solid field reporting, [Larkin] captures the country at its best, and more often, its worst."—San Francisco Chronicle

From the Back Cover

"A truer picture of authoritarianism than anyone has written since, perhaps, Orwell himself."
—Mother Jones

"Mournful, meditative, appealingly idiosyncratic . . . an exercise in literary detection but also a political travelogue."
—The New York Times

"Combining literary criticism with solid field reporting, [Larkin] captures the country at its best and, more often, its worst."
—San Francisco Chronicle

"[A] sobering, journalistic memoir . . . A disquieting profile of a country and its people."
—Newsweek
