Two books on George Orwell have been brought together under one cover. The Unknown Orwell describes the first thirty years of Orwell's life whilst Orwell: The Transformation carries us forward into the crucial years 1933 to 1937 in which Eric Blair, minor novelist, became George Orwell, a powerful writer with a view, a mission, and a message.
