Orwell is solid gold

Solid gold essays by the master of all essayists. 'Looking Back on the Spanish War,' 'Shooting an Elephant,' 'Homage to Catalonia,' 'Inside the Whale,' dozens more lesser-known but every bit as good. There's nothing here to dislike. Nobody can fault this collection except to say "I wish Orwell had lived to write for another 48 years."

This Everyman's edition is a sweet, compact gizmo that fits the palm of my right hand perfectly. It opens flat for easy reading. I love it. If you don't have one, get one. If you like great writing, you'll love it too.
