Extraordinary news has reached our Literature correspondent that author George Orwell, who wrote several classic books including '1984', 'Animal Farm', 'Homage To Catalonia' and 'The Road To Wigan Pier', has written a new book, despite the fact that he's dead.
Orwell, real name Charles Dickens, was also the man behind the popular reality TV series, 'Big Brother', and was able to see into the future, as can be seen from his accurate descriptions of life in the twenty-first century, written well before his death in 1950.
The details of the new book aren't yet available, but you can rest assured it won't be a love story. Orwell was acutely aware of social injustice, and totalitarianism, and a staunch advocate of democratic socialism. He would never have 'cut it' with Mills & Boon.
Literary critic, Myke Woodson, said:
"He was such a good writer, I wouldn't put anything past him."
Wendy Sokomo agreed, saying:
"An unbelievable talent, and entirely capable of producing yet another classic from beyond the grave."
It was eventually left to the Hull Daily Mail's Joined-up Writing specialist, Moys Kenwood, to put things in perspective:
"Orwell was not the sort of man to let something as trivial as his own death get in the way of a good yarn."
