Review by DLSmithies
This is a brilliant book - little bite-sized chunks of vintage Orwell, perfect coffee-break reading. It's mainly book reviews, letters and diary entries, with a few more substantial essays, chronologically arranged. The footnotes at the end of each entry are very helpful. I'm up to 1940, and the themes so far have been colonialism, the USSR and the run-up to WWII.
