But did you know it's by Big Brother?!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: London Belongs to Me (Penguin Modern Classics) (Kindle Edition)
I have loved this book since I first read it as a teenager and, now it's back in print, I've given it as a present to all my London friends. If you liked this, read his other books too. 'The Governor's Lady' is satire as vicious and funny as Waugh and 'Children of the Archbishop' is another wonderful evocation of London. Given Collins' empathy and humanity in print, however, I was taken aback to learn that he was George Orwell's boss at the BBC - and Orwell loathed him so much that he used him as a model for 'Big Brother' in '1984'.

Really? How interesting....maybe it was a case of two great minds clashing!
