George Orwell is best known for Animal Farm and Nineteen Eighty-Four. These timeless novels demonstrate his brilliance of weaving social commentary with great fiction. If you like these novels and his writing style, I would recommend Keep the Aspidistra Flying. Set in London, Orwell depicts a man who refuses to be money-obsessed. He quits his advertising job for lower wages at a bookstore while he pursues his poetry. It’s been several years since I read this book, but I remember how much I enjoyed the sense of humor throughout it.
