Books V. Cigarettes

George Orwell
Penguin Random House

Beginning with a dilemma about whether he spends more money on reading or smoking, George Orwell’s entertaining and uncompromising essays go on to explore everything from the perils of second-hand bookshops to the dubious profession of being a critic, from freedom of the press to what patriotism really means.

Part of Penguin’s Great Ideas series.

Softcover, b/w.
