A clergyman's daughter by George Orwell ( Book )
120 editions published between 1935 and 2008 in 10 languages and held by 1,645 libraries worldwide
From the book's jacket insert: George Orwell's third novel, which has been out of print in this country since its original publication in the thirties, is vintage Orwell in its theme, its spirit, and its style. Dorothy Hare is the perfect daughter of a clergyman. She spends here time in good works, She cultivates good thoughts and pricks her arm with a pin when a bad one arises. And she does her best to bridge the gap between her father's fanciful view of his position in the world and such realities as the butcher's bill. But even Dorothy's strength has its limits, and one night as she works feverishly to finish the costumes for the church-school play, she blacks out. She comes to on a London street, clad in a sleazy dress and unaware of her identity. She is fair game for the tough but friendly Nobby and his cockney pals, who befriend her for the half crown in her pocket. There follows a series of adventures: "pickin' 'ops" in Kent; a night with the down-and-outers in Trafalgar Square-a scene that Richard H. Rovere has said: "may well be the finest thing in all of Orwell's fiction"; teaching in a grubby day school for girls-a whirl of episodes spun out with all the verve and vividness, the biting humor, and the complete authority that Orwell was able to command.

Such, such were the joys by George Orwell ( Book )
16 editions published between 1945 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 865 libraries worldwide
Viewed as too libelous to print in England until 1968, the title essay in this collection reveals the abuse Orwell experienced as a child at an expensive and snobbish boarding school and offers insights into his lifelong concern for the oppressed. "Why I write" describes Orwell's sense of political purpose, and the classic essay "Politics and the English language" insists on clarity and precision in communication in order to avoid the Newspeak later described in 1984. Other essays focus on Gandhi (he "disinfected the political air"), Dickens ("no novelist has shown the same power of entering into the child's point of view"), Kipling ("a jingo imperialist"), Henry Miller (who told Orwell that involvement in the Spanish war was an act of an idiot), and England ("a family with the wrong members in control.").
