Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This four-volume set, first published in 1968, covers 30 years of Orwell's nonfiction. Each volume is divided by year and intermixes his correspondence with news stories and discussions on numerous subjects. Orwell's nonfiction is well worth reading; these reasonably priced books offer an extensive collection for both academic and public libraries.
