The Road to Wigan Pier Revisited By Stephen Armstrong
On Sunday 25th September 2011, the opening day of the Labour Party Conference, Beautiful Books will publish The Road To Wigan Pier Revisited, by acclaimed journalist and writer Stephen Armstrong.
The book will trace the same journey taken by George Orwell 75 years ago, and will explore the extent to which the issues of poverty and social injustice which Orwell found then still exist today in 2011. From Stephen Armstrong: “Many parts of Orwell’s book could be reproduced word for word describing Britain today — a terrifying idea in a modern first world social democracy. In my book I discover shocking poverty, missing community and a forgotten generation. But also acts of heroism, imagination and optimism the offer hope and faith in a nation of lions lead by donkeys.”
Stephen Armstrong is the author of War plc (Faber, 2009), The Super-Rich Shall Inherit The Earth (Constable, 2010) and The White Island (Black Swan, 2005). Stephen writes for the Sunday Times, Guardian, Daily Telegraph, Elle, Esquire and other publications.
