Summary:

This audiobook includes unabridged recordings of George Orwell's 3 books of non-fiction and 3 of his most well-renowned essays.

Down and Out in Paris and London: Orwell recounts his London tramping exploits in Paris and London with a cast of colourful characters.

The Road to Wigan Pier: Vivid descriptions of social injustice, cramped slum housing, dangerous mining conditions, squalor, hunger, and growing unemployment create a searing account of working-class life in the bleak industrial heartlands of Yorkshire and Lancashire in the 1930s.

Homage to Catalonia: Having enlisted to fight for an anti-Stalinist communist party in Spain, Orwell is soon forced to flee the country and here discusses the destructive nature of Soviet communism.

Politics and the English Language: A stinging criticism of the 'ugly and inaccurate' written English of Orwell's time which examines the connection between political orthodoxies and the debasement of language.
