|The Road To Wigan Pier||20000107|
In 1936 George Orwell spent two months in Lancashire and Yorkshire gathering material for `The Road to Wigan Pier', a powerful description of working-class communities ravaged by unemployment.
The book made Orwell's reputation but offended both middle-class socialists and the very people whose conditions he documented.
Jeff Nuttall chronicles the writer's journey.
