The whole experience of being hit by a bullet is very interesting and I think it is worth describing in detail.August 15, 2007
George Orwell on being shot.
I love the way he writes, at one point, that his may not have been the thoughts of a dying man because he wasn’t actually dying. A true writer; striving for accuracy with a hole in his neck.
The best line is mangled on the site. He talks of the “violent resentment at having to leave this world which, when all is said and done, suits me so well.”
