Keep the Aspidistra Flying
by George Orwell
Publisher: eBooks@Adelaide 2004
Gordon Comstock loathes dull, middle-class respectability and worship of money. He gives up a 'good job' in advertising to work part-time in a bookshop, giving him more time to write. But he slides instead into a self-induced poverty that destroys his creativity and his spirit. Through the character of Gordon Comstock, Orwell reveals his own disaffection with the society he once himself renounced.
