‘A bag of wind’

I saw this letter George Orwell wrote to his editor Frederic Warburg at the Out of This World exhibition at the British Library last year. I’m glad I found a picture someone took of it as I had been thinking about it since and trying to remember exactly what Orwell says about Sartre towards the end of the letter. It makes me smile every time.

  1. “The execution would have been better if I had not written it under the influence of TB.” George Orwell, ever the charlatan!
