... of Rodden's earlier book on Orwell. In fact some of the material from the first book is copied over intact, though there is some new material.

Personally, I think Orwell's "afterlife", though mildly interesting, is much less important than his impact on his contemporaries, which was considerable. He had become "St. George" to some before he died.

An excellent look at Orwell's legacy from one of the best Orwell scholars. Fascinating look at how all hues of the political spectrum have tried to expropriate the freethinking author.
