Synopses & Reviews
With a foreword by Thomas Pynchon
A masterpiece of rebellion and imprisonment, where war is peace, freedom is slavery, and Big Brother is watching...
View our feature on George Orwells 1984.
Thought Police. Big Brother. Orwellian. These words have entered our vocabulary because of George Orwells classic dystopian novel, 1984. The story of one mans nightmare odyssey as he pursues a forbidden love affair through a world ruled by warring states and a power structure that controls not only information but also individual thought and memory, 1984 is a prophetic, haunting tale.
More relevant than ever before, 1984 exposes the worst crimes imaginable—the destruction of truth, freedom, and individuality.
This beautiful paperback edition features deckled edges and french flaps — a perfect gift for any occasion.
A humorous, light-hearted story about one man's fight against a puritanical totalitarian government from the award-winning Philip K. Dick.
Following a devastating nuclear war, the Moral Reclamation government took over the world and forced its citizens to live by strictly puritanical rules—no premarital sex, drunkenness, or displaying of neon signs—all of which are reinforced through a constant barrage of messaging to the public. The chief purveyor of these messages is Alan Purcell, next in line to become head of the propaganda bureau. But there is just one problem: a statue of the government’s founder has been vandalized and the head is hidden in Purcell’s closet. In this buttoned-up society, maybe all a revolution needs is one really great prank . . .
This new centennial edition is the masterpiece of rebellion and imprisonment, where war is peace, freedom is slavery, and Big Brother is watching.
