      "He was the author of Animal Farm, 1984 and some of the most memorable
      political writing of the 20th Century. But, as his diaries show,
      George Orwell was also interested in travel, food - and even slugs.

      The diaries, written from 1938, cover the descent of Europe into war,
      as well as Orwell's travels in Morocco, following his sojourn in
      Catalonia, fighting in the Spanish Civil War. They cover the
      insightful and the mundane - he even includes newspaper clippings of
      sloe gin recipes.

      Now those diaries will be made available online, by the Orwell Prize -
      a prize for political writing set up in his name. "
