The Road to Wigan Pier is a book by George Orwell, first published in 1937. Part autobiography, part social commentary, the book discusses the reality of the Depression in the North of England. The first half of the book tells of Orwell's investigations into the harsh conditions of the working class living in Lancashire and Yorkshire before World War II. The second half of the book is an essay on his own middle class upbringing, and how his political views developed, particularly those concerning Socialism, which Orwell was in favour of.

This book has 132 pages in the PDF version, and was originally published in 1937.

Production notes: This e-book of The Road to Wigan Pier was published by Global Grey in 2020.
