By the Book: Bibliography - George Orwell

In this month's episode of Bibliography, we look at the life and works of George Orwell, the man whose works continue to inform political thinking today, and who introduced terms such as Big Brother and doublethink into culture. We discuss his non-fiction work, the novels that have defined his legacy, and the lengths he went to in order to write a truthful account of experiencing life as a tramp. And then in Footnotes, we look at adaptations of his work and the difficulty of adapting 1984 in an Orwellian world.
