George Orwell named as 'writers' writer'





George Orwell has been named as the most popular Penguin novelist in its history in a survey of its current stable of writers.

The publisher asked 50 of its authors to name their favourite book from its back list.

Orwell garnered four nominations. No other author gained more than one.

Orwell's continued dominance as a writer and thinker comes despite the fact that he died 60 years ago this January.
