China bans Orwell. Life imitating art imitating life

Image result for china animal farm

While China has made some great strides modernizing and engaging the world in the last several decades, it can still be relied upon to do some good old fashioned book banning. Once again, Orwell’s Animal Farm made the cut.  They also banned the letter “N”, so don’t throw that letter around lightly if you are in China (that letter ban has since been reversed). Christopher was a great  admirer of George Orwell and his “Why Orwell Matters“, as he would say, can be found at fine bookstores everywhere.
