Orwell's 1949 book, 1984, is back on a bestsell list ~ Amazon
The British author's most famous work, the dystopian fantasy 1984, hit the no.1 spot on Amazon's bestseller list on Tuesday, and demand is so high the publisher Penguin is set to print 75,000 more copies according to CNN's Reliable Sources.
First published in 1949, a year before Orwell's death, 1984 tells the story of a future dictatorship where facts are constantly distorted. The book has spawned numerous neologisms including Big Brother, newspeak, thoughtcrime and doublespeak.

1984 is being rediscovered by a whole new generation with an unlikely assist from Donald Trump's counselor Kellyann Conway. Barely a day into the new presidency, Conway coined the rather Orwellian phrase "alternative facts" to push back against claims the administration was lying about Trump's inauguration day crowd size.
