Stupid Sexy Orwell - Literary Loitering 117

Feb 10, 2020, 10:18 PM

After gathering once more in their secret hideout above a cafe on a high street in a small town that may or may not be near you (it’s not), the cultural anarchists are shocked to discover that their arch-nemesis (temporarily, and they haven’t told him yet as they’re still deciding if he’s the right one for them. A nemesis is for life, not just for entertainment), Ed Miliband has decided to start his own podcast about books.
After that it’s time for something more fun and wholesome(?), and what could be more entertaining than some newly revealed correspondence from the archives of George Orwell. The wholesomeness arrives in the form of an antiquarian bookshop that becomes popular after a tweet, and an underrated book that gains much deserved praise and publicity. 
Normal service does resume when we discuss a rather amazing gaff by the Romance Writers of America, and we end with a quiz about newspaper corrections.
