The Complete Novels of George OrwellPaperback - 2009
His best-known novels, "Animal Farm" and "Nineteen Eighty-Four", are two of the most famous, well-quoted and influential political satires ever written. The other novels in this volume are also concerned with individuals at odds with repressive institutions: the corrupt imperialism of "Burmese Days", disaffection with materialistic society in "Keep the Aspidistra Flying", the perils of modern suburban living in "Coming Up for Air" and the down-and-out girls in "A Clergyman's Daughter". They all display Orwell's deep understanding of human nature, his biting humour and great compassion.
