Essays by the author of 1984 on topics from "remembrances of working in a bookshop [to] recollections of fighting in the Spanish Civil War" (Publishers Weekly).

George Orwell was first and foremost an essayist, producing throughout his life an extraordinary array of short nonfiction that reflectedand illuminatedthe fraught times in which he lived. "As soon as he began to write something," comments George Packer in his foreword, "it was as natural for Orwell to propose, generalize, qualify, argue, judgein short, to thinkas it was for Yeats to versify or Dickens to invent."

Facing Unpleasant Facts charts Orwell's development as a master of the narrative-essay form and unites such classics as "Shooting an Elephant" with lesser-known journalism and passages from his wartime diary. Whether detailing the horrors of Orwell's boyhood in an English boarding school or bringing to life the sights, sounds, and smells of the Spanish Civil War, these essays weave together the personal and the political in an unmistakable style that is at once plainspoken and brilliantly complex.

"Best known for his late-career classics Animal Farm and 1984, George Orwellwho used his given name, Eric Blair, in the earliest pieces of this collection aimed at the aficionado as well as the general readerwas above all a polemicist of the first rank. Organized chronologically, from 1931 through the late 1940s, these in-your-face writings showcase the power of this literary form." Publishers Weekly, starred review
