ORWELL'S GHOSTS Wisdom and Warnings for the Twenty-First Century

by | Read by Tanya Eby

Contemporary Culture • 6.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

Tanya Eby gives a clear delivery in a precise style. She is an intelligent narrator who skillfully paces this heady appraisal of the famed English author George Orwell. These days the term "Orwellian" seems to be equally availed by the right, left, and center, all of whom appropriate his two most famous novels, ANIMAL FARM and 1984. This tightly argued, biographically based audiobook looks at the lasting influence of Orwell's complex ideas, which are too often considered to be simply anti-Soviet or libertarian. Unafraid to consider the writer as a whole, Beers points out: "He was a socialist but decidedly not a feminist." Beers reexamines Orwell's lesser-known reportage and reviews to make sense of our own era. His legacy is further burnished by this audiobook.
