Commissioned by the Left Book club in 1936, George Orwell set out to report on working class life in the bleak industrial heartlands of Yorkshire and Lancashire. The experience profoundly changed him, and in Wigan Pier he unleased a brilliant and bitter polemic that has not lost ...its force with the passage of time. The first edition of The Road to Wigan Pier' included 32 plates. These illustrations of slum conditions, which give added resonance to Orwell's indictment, are restored in this new edition.
