Decline of the English Murder, Paperback

Decline of the English Murder Paperback

Part of the Penguin Great Ideas series



In these timeless and witty essays George Orwell explores the English love of reading about a good murder in the papers (and laments the passing of the heyday of the 'perfect' murder involving class, sex and poisoning), as well as unfolding his trenchant views on everything from boys' weeklies to naughty seaside postcards.
