George Orwell

A Life


The authoritative biography of George Orwell, written with the cooperation of Orwell's widow.

‘In its thoroughness, and its mastery of a considerable volume of material, this is the definitive biography of Orwell.’ Sunday Times

‘It is hardly worth using up space to declare just how good it is. Different readers will come away from its seventeen pungent and packed chapters with diverse memories of its excellence.’ Guardian
