George Orwell: "One cannot read everything, and to be aware even of the extent of one's ignorance means accepting a great deal at second or third hand."
Fortunately, Orwell read prodigiously. The 320 reviews take us to different worlds: Napoleon's retreat from Moscow; Finland at war; Mark Twain's America; the Faroe Islands; Hitler; Mussolini. Biographies include fascinating insights into Baudelaire, Byron, Carlyle, Dickens, Gogol and Parnell. Others include Clement Attlee, Chekhov, Arthur Conan Doyle, de Gaulle, Gandhi, Kipling, Lermontov, Jack London, Stendhal and Jules Verne. Women of achievement include writers, a sculptor and a factory inspector.
