The Road to Wigan Pier, CD-Audio Book

The Road to Wigan Pier CD-Audio

Narrated by Jeremy Northam

Description

George Orwell's direct style and his hallmark hard honesty and humanity, blend brilliantly for the spoken word medium. The Road to Wigan Pier is a graphic and biting polemic that still holds a fierce political relevance and impact despite being written over half a century ago.

First published in 1937 it charts George Orwell's observations of working-class life during the 1930s in the industrial heartlands of Yorkshire and Lancashire.

His depictions of social injustice and rising unemployment, the dangerous working conditions in the mines amid general squalor and hunger also bring together many of the ideas explored in his later works and novels.
