In the vast expanse of late-Victorian Britain, two boys come to life: George, the son of a Midlands vicar, and Arthur, in shabby genteel Edinburgh, both of them feeling at once near to and impossibly distant from the beating heart of Empire.
Intriguing, relentless and, most of all, moving, Arthur & George richly extends the reach and achievement of a novelist described by the Philadelphia Inquirer as a dazzling mind in mercurial flight.
He is also the author of Something to Declare and Letters from London, as well as two collections of short stories, Cross Channel and The Lemon Table.

A figure of controversy throughout his life, Farwell's artistic ideas--particularly his work in the Indianist Movement--still provoke discussion in a politically correct and largely myopic modern age that has difficulty understanding the contexts from which our artists come.
Arthur Farwell's credo--that it is only by exalting the common inspirations of American life that we can become great musically with all its Whitmanesque resonance--surely stands at the heart of the pioneering spirit which has shaped all American thought and art.

 George Orwell   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
London, Jan. 21, 1950, achieved prominence in the late 1940s as the author of two brilliant satires attacking totalitarianism.
His wartime work for the BBC (published in the collections George Orwell: The Lost Writings, and The War Commentaries) gave him a solid taste of bureaucratic hypocrisy and may have provided the inspiration for his invention of "newspeak," the truth-denying language of Big Brother's rule in Nineteen Eighty-Four.
Orwell's reputation rests not only on his political shrewdness and his sharp satires but also on his marvelously clear style and on his superb essays, which rank with the best ever written.
