Description or summary of the audiobook: A selection of George Orwell's prescient, clear-eyed and stimulating writing on the subjects of truth and lies. With an introduction by Alan Johnson.'Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two equals four. If that is granted, all else follows.'This selection of George Orwell's writing, from both his novels and non-fiction, gathers together his thoughts on the subject of truth. It ranges from discussion of personal honesty and morality, to freedom of speech and political propaganda. Orwell's unique clarity of thought and illuminating scepticism provide the perfect defence against our post-truth world of fake news and confusion. 'The further a society drifts from the truth, the more it will hate those that speak it.'Includes an introduction by Alan Johnson and passages from Burmese Days, The Road to Wigan Pier, Coming Up for Air, The Lion and the Unicorn, Animal Farm, Nineteen Eighty-Four, Orwell's letters, war-time diary, criticism and essays including `Fascism and Democracy', `Culture and Democracy', `Looking Back on the Spanish War', `As I Please', `Notes on Nationalism', `The Prevention of Literature', `Politics and the English Language' and `Why I Write'.
