Eric Blair
BC'er outen sich ja oft als Missionare in Sachen BuchReligion ,-) Hope you can all tell a good book from a bad one. Ich will heute mal missionarisch das Augenmerk auf Eric Blair aka George Orwell lenken: Am 25. Juni 2003 hat er 100. Geburtstag.
"1984" und "Animal Farm" sind den meisten ja bekannt, weniger bekannt und sehr lesenswert ist: "Coming up for air"; "Keep the aspidistra flying" " "Hommage to Catalonia"; "Down and out in Paris and London", um nur einige zu nennen... Ich beabsichtige noch rechtzeitig einige (die meisten?) Titel auf mein Shelf zu bringen. Bei Interesse PM.
When I worked in a second-hand bookshop – so easily pictured, if you don’t work in one, as a kind of paradise where charming old gentlemen browse eternally among calf-bound folios – the thing that chiefly struck me was the rarity of really bookish people. Our shop had an exceptionally interesting stock, yet I doubt whether ten per cent of our customers knew a good book from a bad one. First edition snobs were much commoner than lovers of literature, but oriental students haggling over cheap textbooks were commoner still, and vague-minded women looking for birthday presents for their nephews were commonest of all.
(From: Bookshop memories, G.O. 1936)
