Hitchens, Christopher
Why Orwell Matters
Basic Books, New York, 2002. First edition, first printing. Signed by Christopher Hitchens and inscribed to a former owner on the title page. Fine in a Near Fine unclipped dust jacket with slight waviness and slight sunning to the orange print at the spine. One iconoclastic British essayist's defense of another. Orwell is famous for his dystopian novels (Animal Farm & 1984) but his nonfiction is perhaps even more critically acclaimed. Hitchens examines Orwell's struggles with censorship, his discomfort with both the political left and right, his shortcomings, and sees himself. Like Orwell, his promising career would be cut short by an untimely death. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; In Dust Jacket]
Bookseller: Burnside Rare Books, ABAA [Portland, OR, U.S.A.]
