This anthology has been in the making for some years in the mind of the editor, Dione Venables, founding member of The Orwell Society. In 2006 she contributed the postscript to her cousin Jacintha Buddicom's memoir about the childhood and early youth of George Orwell. She continues to work for greater clarity and appreciation of the great man's genius and felt that this emotional layer of perception had been largely ignored by academia. Her commentary on Orwell's life is intended to make his poetry more understandable to listeners from other countries.

i read a lot..........
Like the way the book was laid out,it start from the early life to his death.
not really any character,its was more about the way he was,and the different changes in his life and that is seen in his work.
haven't listened to other Performances,but i think Greg Wise and Dione Venables made the book come to life.i think they did a splendid job,and both narrated very Well.
Made me think what a great writer George Orwell was,and the pain he went through and how pride he was of his country.
Totally enjoy this book,well narrated,it was a joy to listen to,thank you.
