Resumen:

"George Orwell is best known for Animal Farm and 1984, Evelyn Waugh for Brideshead Revisited and comic novels like Scoop and Vile Bodies. However different they may seem, these two towering figures of twentieth-century literature are linked for the first time in this unconventional biography, which goes beyond the story of their amazing lives to reach the core of their beliefs - a shared vision that was startlingly prescient about our own troubled times." "Waugh and Orwell would meet only once, as the latter lay dying of tuberculosis, yet as The Same Man shows, in their life and work both writers rebelled against a modern world run by a privileged, sometimes brutal, few. Orwell and Waugh were almost alone among their peers in seeing what the future - our time - would bring, and they dedicated their lives to warning us against what was coming: a world of material wealth but few values, an existence without tradition or community or common purpose, where lives are measured in dollars, not sense. They explained why, despite prosperity, so many people feel that our society is headed in the wrong direction. David Lebedoff believes that we need both Orwell and Waugh now more than ever."--Jacket.
