Of course he shot a fucking elephant

George Orwell’s biographer Bernard Crick lunched with the author’s widow, Sonia, at Bertorelli’s in London. They were talking about “Shooting an Elephant,” or, more accurately, about whether Orwell really did shoot an elephant in Burma. “‘Of course he shot a fucking elephant,’ Sonia shouted. ‘He said he did. Why do you always doubt his fucking word?’” Because, Crick replied, “he was a writer, not a bloody cub reporter.”
