This illustrated biography of George Orwell offers the reader a fascinating and engaging looking at the life of one England's foremost novelists, political essayists, and voices for a more equitable world. Tracing his life from his days at Eton through to his involvement in the Spanish Civil War and his time in London's slums as a journalist, Orwell is a artfully rendered representation of this remarkable man's contributions to the world we live in today. Though 1984 remains Orwell's most famous work, this graphic biography goes well beyond that famous novel to show the reader the depth of Orwell's literary ability and political insight. A must read.
