85 Years Later, A Close Resemblance

One of Eli 20.3s tutorials this fall is on George Orwell. 

I've been reading along with him, because I've read Orwell's "classics" (1984, Animal Farm, etc.), but missed out on some of his earlier work. 

Right now, he's just finished Keep the Aspidistra Flying, which is where Orwell wrote some of his most memorable passages (to me, at least). The protagonist (Gordon) works in a seedy lending library with all kinds of semi-lewd content, and one of the books is titled The Man She Trusted.

I burst out laughing when I read that, because of its close resemblance to The Man You Trust.  Eli did, too.
