Rebecca Solnit’s New Book


Rebecca Solnit, one of my favorite writers, has a new book out, Orwell’s Roses. I happened upon a 30 minute interview on “Start Making Sense,” The Nation’s podcast. In discussing her book, she talks about politics, pleasure, joy and resistance to authoritarianism. Solnit’s take on George Orwell, the man and his work, was thought provoking.

  1. I enjoyed listening to Rebecca Solnit speak about George Orwell, Barbara. I didn’t know anything about him other than Animal Farm and 1984. And as a result, I’ve now put his book about the Spanish Civil War on my list (Homage to Catalonia).
