Orwell's Nose is an original and imaginative account of the life and work of George Orwell, exploring the 'scent narratives' that abound in Orwell's fiction and non-fiction. Along the way John Sutherland elucidates questions that remain unanswered in previous biographies, and addresses gaps in the evidence of the writer's life and legacy. Orwell covered his tracks well; this illuminating and irreverent book provides a new understanding of one of our most iconic and influential writers.
