Don't hesitate should you see this book, just buy it. You will get more pleasure from it than you will from all but a few books to be found anywhere. The collection includes the "As I Please" articles he wrote weekly for the socialist newspaper Tribune. These are period pieces that reflect a lot of what is English about England, and Orwell himself. The unfolding of Orwell's opinions that reach full flower in '1984' can be watched because the essays are arranged chronologically. The leavening, like "A Nice Cup of Tea", an essay on junk shops, or Woolworths' climbing roses, is mixed in delightfully.
