This was exactly the book I needed to read after a recent trip to Burma, not so much for the Orwellian thread, interesting as that is, but for the insights Larkin provides to life in Myanmar. I wanted to continue travelling with her instead of closing the book, and immediately ordered up 'Everything is broken'.
I was rather concerned that even if names were changed it would be very easy to identify almost all of the people she speaks with. Clearly Larkin is very professional and she must have been certain that publication of 'Finding George Orwell in Burma' would not result in any repercussions for people who had trusted her with their opinions. However, I found it difficult to understand how the backgrounds of those contributors could have been changed sufficiently to protect them without entirely altering the context that characterises and sometimes validates their stories. I'm not a journalist, doubtless Larkin followed an accepted level of protective alteration.
