For the first time, these two essential works on George Orwell have been brought together in one audiobook. The Unknown Orwell describes the first 30 years of Orwell's life - his childhood, the years at Eton and in Burma, and the struggles to become a writer. Orwell: The Transformation carries us forward into the crucial years 1933 to 1937 in which Eric Blair, minor novelist, became George Orwell, a powerful writer with a view, a mission, and a message.
