Building on Rodden's first major study of Orwell's complex and contested legacy, this sequel presents new scenes of his posthumous reception and influence. It is a book about a life that became a legend." "George Orwell's afterlife is a unique tale of contemporary fame, the implausible yet true story of a literary second act that knows no comparison. More than a half-century after his death, Orwell's name still wields a rhetorical and political force sufficient to stimulate public argument. In addressing the intellectual bequest and cultural impact of Orwell, Scenes from an Afterlife provides a significant contribution to contemporary cultural history."--Jacket." ;
