ERIC ARTHUR BLAIR (1903–1950), better known by his pen name George Orwell, was an English author and journalist whose best-known works include the dystopian novel 1984 and the satirical novella Animal Farm. He is consistently ranked among the best English writers of the 20th century, and his writing has had a huge, lasting influence on contemporary culture. Several of his coined words have since entered the English language, and the word "Orwellian" is now used to describe totalitarian or authoritarian social practices.
"Brazilian graphic novelist Odyr's 'fully authorized' adaptation (in accordance with The Estate of Sonia Brownell Orwell) of Orwell’s 1945 classic is affecting example...alchemizing Orwell’s period writing into a timeless, immediately terrifying warning about the dangers of abusive power."--Booklist "[Odyr's] rich brushstrokes do much to enhance the experience of Orwell’s brand of satire."--New York Journal of Books —
