Orwell's Roses

Solnit, Rebecca

  0 Reviews

On one hand there was his passion for social justice famously expressed through his classic works of literature, and on the other, was his unexpected passion for … gardening. At the centre of this story is George Orwell, writer, political thinker, and avid gardener.

Part biography, part personal memoir, and with thought-provoking rambles through nature, art and politics, this book is a fascinating foray into the life of one of the most influential writers of the 20th century. [Small font]
