It is what I think, 1947-1948
Secker & Warburg, 1998 - Biography & Autobiography - 539 pages
Much of 1947 and 1948 was taken up with Orwell's struggle to complete 1984 and his fight against illness. He was admitted to the hospital and continued to work on "Such, Such Were the Joys," he wrote several essays, and he continued to review. Changes made in the course of the production of Orwell's radio version of Animal Farm are listed, and his second Literary Notebook is reproduced.
