Blurb: “$575°° per year... When George Orwell went to the north of England in the thirties to find out how industrial workers lived, he not only observed but shared their ex-perience. He stayed in dreary lodgings and subsisted on the scant, cheerless diet of the poor. He went down into the coal mines and walked crouching, as the miners did, from one to three miles, to the coal face which was a passage too low to stand up in.

The essence of this book is the searing, yet beautiful report of what Orwell found in the coal mine

-"Wigan Pier"-and the unforgetable and important answers that were there.”
