Previous commenter got title wrong. It's Facing Unpleasant Facts.

Eric Blair, who wrote as George Orwell, was only 46 when he succumbed to tuberculous in 1950, but in his short life he had secured his place as one of the most important writers of the 20th century. The causal reader (and high school student) will always think of Orwell in connection with "1984" and "Animal Farm," but it's his non-fiction that is arguably more influential and enduring. This collection of his critical writings, compiled by New Yorker writer George Packer, is an excellent cross-section of his essays, which touch on politics, literature, film, theater, writing, and other subjects. Also check out the companion piece, "Facing Unpleasant Truths," which is a collection of his narrative essays.
