English cooking, boys' weeklies, P. G. Wodehouse and the common toad are some of the more unexpected subjects that crop up in this outstanding anthology. It includes George Orwell's most famous pieces - 'My Country Right or Left', 'The Decline of the English Murder', 'Shooting an Elephant' and 'How the Poor Die' among them - all delivered in his memorable 'plain style' and unrivalled in their power to challenge, move and entertain.
