Catalogue Note

An unusually fine copy in the rare dust-jacket of Orwell's portrait of Hampstead bohemia: "those bitter and often jealous intellectuals, living in bed-sits, making a pint in a pub last a whole evening, fearing rent day, and knowing that the post brought only rejection slips." (Oxford DNB).
