Orwell’s account of his visit to the ‘black north’ has been called ‘the mother of all literary journalist’s reportages’. It’s still a fascinating, sometimes... More > even gripping impression of life on, above and underground. Next to that, Orwell’s book contains a second part in which he went the theorizing way. This is serious stuff but by no means dull.
