Finally reading some more Orwell recently, a book I put off for far too long. Like my favorite,"Down and Out in Paris and London," it's a goody.
"Homage to Catalonia" is Orwell's memoir of fighting the fascists in the Spanish Civil War. I should have read it years ago, just never got around to it for some reason--perhaps sloth. Or perhaps I'd read too many books about war and suffered from second-hand battle fatigue. Anyway...
