Prehaps better than anything else by Orwell; "Such Such Were the Joys" is an amazing essay.

I'm usually one to write in depth and detailed reviews about books, but I stopped by here to say that if you're considering this particular publication desist at once, fret no more. There are two great collections of Orwell's narrative and critical essays entitled "Facing Unpleasant Facts" and "All Art is Propaganda", respectively. On their own they each contain more reading content than this terse version, and together they present an excellent fuller picture of his works. The only (not quite redeeming) thing about this version is the picture of Orwell sitting down at work; I was almost ready to buy it just for that feature, but I decided against it and I haven't (for the most part) regretted it.
