Description
Information
A real-life fairytale with a brilliant, larger-than-life heroine.

Sonia Orwell was a woman of great beauty, power and presence. She married George Orwell three months before he died, becoming his sole heir and literary executor. Since then she has been blamed for exploiting his name and squandering his fortune, but Hilary Spurling argues that this is a travesty of the truth based on misconception and ignorance. Aiming to set the record straight, she shows that Sonia Orwell was in fact a heroic woman who devoted much of her life to righting wrongs.
