Orwell's cautionary tale is now in graphic novel form, and more relevant than ever

In the nation of Oceania, everyone is ruled by the Party. Winston Smith, a low-ranking member, is monitored by the Party incessantly. Even in his own home, The Party watches him through 2-way telescreens, and everywhere he looks he sees the face of the Party's seemingly omniscient leader, Big Brother. The Party controls everything in Oceania, including the people's history and language. Now, the Party is enforcing the use of an invented language called Newspeak, in an attempt to prevent political insurgency by eliminating all words related to it. Thinking that contradicts or casts doubt on Party ideology is considered ‘thoughtcrime’, and is punishable by death.

But a seed of dissent grows in Winston – one that will bring him into direct conflict with the Party, and with devastating consequences.

Rarely has one book ever been so rich in political and social criticism as 1984. Originally published in 1949, this new graphic novel edition of the dystopian classic, powerfully illustrated by Matyáš Namai, reveals Winston's fight against the Party in all its horror and futility.
