    Dear Johnc900,

    you’re welcome. One day I’m sure to write a review about this gem, or at the very least about one of the essays in it, “Politics and the English Language”. I have a pagemarker permanently sitting in the page where Orwell defines “a scrupulous writer”.

    Cheers,
    Maarten
