Illustrations by Mike Mosher

Haymarket Books (Spring 2018, world English rights)

Trade Paper • ISBN-13: 9781608467839 •  192 pgs.

ABOUT THE BOOK:

George Orwell is one of the most celebrated of all 20th-century literary figures, yet he is frequently misunderstood, largely because his expositors have seldom fully grasped his sophisticated left-wing anti-Stalinism. This illustrated narrative is uniquely accessible and provides the insight needed to understand Orwell, with the same kind of light touch that Orwell himself adored.

PRAISE:

“An outstanding introduction of George Orwell’s politics that has certainly stood the test of time, and the artwork is tremendous.”

Socialist Review
