George Orwell was always a political writer. That is obvious from such modern classic as Animal Farm and Nineteen Eighty-Four.

Here is a collection of his work when he became literary editor of the Left-wing Tribune and was allowed to indulge in his passions.

The essays show both the serious side of Orwell and his views on the world and his tongue-in-cheek opinions on such subjects as women's magazines and horror comics.

A worthwhile addition to anyone who appreciates the writings of Orwell.
