Abstract:

"George Orwell and the Radical Eccentrics examines the lives, literature, and politics of a group of four writers working in London during the 1930s and 1940s - the suburban satirist Stevie Smith, the Marxist Indian nationalist, Mulk Raj Anand, and the beautiful socialist bohemian Inez Holden - who formed a friendly circle around the famously radical and eccentric George Orwell. Demonstrating that Smith, Anand, and Holden matter for literary history just as they mattered for Orwell, this book gives name and shape to a neglected movement, inter-modernism, within interwar and wartime English writing."--BOOK JACKET.
