    Orwell's novel focuses on a handful of Englishmen who meet at the European Club to drink whisky and to alleviate the acute and unspoken loneliness of life in Burma during the waning days of British Imperialism. One of the men, James Flory, has grown soft, clearly comprehending the futility of England's rule. However, he lacks the fortitude to stand up for his Indian friend, Dr. Veraswami, for admittance into the whites-only club. Without membership and the accompanying prestige which would protect the doctor, the condemning and ill-found attack by a bitter magistrate might bring an end to everything he has accomplished. All complicated by the fact of Flory's falling in love with a new English girl.

    For the first time in one hardcover volume—three classic novels by the author of Nineteen Eighty- Four and Animal Farm.The lushly descriptive and tragic Burmese Days, a devastating indictment of British colonial rule, is based on Orwell’s own experience while serving in the Indian Imperial Police. His beloved satirical classic, Keep the Aspidistra Flying, features a young idealist whose attempt to rebel against middle-class respectability—by working in a bookshop and trying to be a writer—goes terribly and comically awry. The hero of Coming Up for Air tries to escape the bleakness of suburbia by returning to the idyllic rural village of his childhood—only to find that the simpler England he remembers so nostalgically is gone forever.These three novels share Orwell’s unsparing vision of the dark side of modern capitalist society in combination with his comic brilliance and his unerring compassion for humanity.

    (Centennial Edition). The scene is London, where there has been no new housing since 1950 & where the city-wide slums are called Victory Mansions. Science has abandoned Man forthe State, and, as every citizen knows only too well, war=peace. To Winston Smith, a young man who toils in the Ministry of Truth, come two people who transform his life completely. One is Julia, whom he meets after she hands him a slip reading 'I love you.' The other is O'Brien, who tells him, 'We shall meet in the place where there is no darkness.' The way in which Winston is betrayed by one, & ultimately betrays the other, makes '1984' a harrowing psychothriller.

    In the 1930s, the Left Book Club, a socialist group in England, sent George Orwell to investigate the poverty and mass unemployment in the industrial north of England. Once there, he went beyond the requests of the book club, to investigate the employed as well. Orwell chose to live as the coal miners did - sleeping in foul lodgings, subsisting on a meager diet, struggling to fee a family on a dismal wage, and going down into the hellish, backbreaking mines. What Orwell saw clarified his feelings about socialism and here he pointedly tells why socialism, the only remedy to the shocking conditions he had witnessed, repelled 'so many normal decent people.' A stinging rebuke. 232p.
