I have always told people that I love Homage to Catalonia, but I' ve decided it's Orwell that I love especially the fact that he wrote l984 in '48. I must add my vote for satire. Isn't that the lingua franca of all truthful discourse. The rest may not be silence, but it's better than being sentenced to sententiousness.

Homage to Catalonia has become my touchstone for honesty in writing. An amazing book.
