George Orwell

When I sit down to write a book, I do not say to myself, "I am going to produce a work of art." I write it because there is some lie that I want to expose, some fact to which I want to draw attention, and my initial concern is to get a hearing.

George Orwell (1903-1950) English novelist and essayist (real name Eric Blair) whose 1949 classic 1984 predicted a dystopian surveillance state where everyone is watched by "Big Brother". Many believe his prediction is coming true.
