Publisher Description

Orwell's graphically unforgettable descriptions of social injustice, cramped slum housing, dangerous mining conditions, squalor, hunger and growing unemployment are written with unblinking honesty, fury and great humanity. It crystallized the ideas that would be found in his later works and novels, and remains a powerful portrait of poverty, injustice and class divisions in Britain.

The Road to Wigan Pier.

I love the literacy of the author. I was quite surprised by the abrupt finish; however, the time for enlightened socialism has passed.
The class distinctions are anachronistic, and have been replaced by creeping fascism.
All in all, a good read. I’m not converted.
