Why Orwell Matters

New York: Basic Books, 2002.

Signed by Hitchens with his name crossed out, inscribed to former owner. First edition. xii, 211 pp. Original cloth. Fine in Fine unclipped dust jacket. An excellent copy.

One iconoclastic British essayist's defense of another. Orwell is famous for his dystopian novels (Animal Farm & 1984) but his nonfiction is perhaps even more critically acclaimed. Hitchens examines Orwell's struggles with censorship, his discomfort with both the political left and right, his shortcomings, and sees himself. Like Orwell, his promising career would be cut short by an untimely death. Item #140938635
