Danilo Bandeira Bandeira من عند Izbiska, بولندا
I'm also one of those people who somehow missed this book in high school; we did "Animal Farm," and "Brave New World." This book made me cry - anyone else? I cried at the part when the doublespeak dictionary writer talked with excitement about the destruction of language, saying that soon the Thought Police would be obsolete because even if people could think inappropriate thoughts, there would be no more words to share them with anyone else. Horrible thought.
My favorite author right now.....wonderful, dry sense of humor w/ great short stories of insanity!
