Orwell's Home

Here's the link to the SF Chronicle article Writer's Retreat (3/18/07) on George Orwell's home in Scotland for those who haven't read it yet.

BTW: I enjoyed Saturday's lively discussion about Nineteen Eighty-Four and am still mulling it all over. (Thanks Connie for sharing the article...and the cartoon. ;-)
After wrenching free of my habitual moorings, last summer I stood below the whitewashed stone wall of an old farmhouse on a remote Scottish isle. I stared out at the same wild, coastal view that a dying George Orwell took in whenever he raised his eyes from writing his last book, the dystopian epic, "1984." Link to article.
