The Road to Wigan Pier

By George Orwell

Published Jan 2010

Commissioned by the Left Book Club in 1936, George Orwell set out to report on working class life in the bleak industrial heartlands of Yorkshire and Lancashire. The experience profoundly changed him, and in Wigan Pier he unleashed a brilliant and bitter polemic that has not lost its force with the passage of time.
