Every Sunday, the Los Angeles Times prints the lists of the bestselling books for that week. There’s the hardbacks and there’s the paperbacks – and they’re both divided into Fiction and Non-Fiction.

Well, Sunday, November 26th, like all Sundays, the Times printed the bestsellers.

But way down in the paperbacks section was a subtle change – which tells us the LA Times knows something we don’t. Just what is it?

The novel “1984” by George Orwell was listed in the “Non-Fiction” section. It was number 4 on that list.

Do the editors know something and are trying to get the message out – slowly?

Was this a subtle ploy by a disgruntled employee of the giant newspaper?

Or was it an attempt to equate our Trumpian reality with Orwell’s dystopian future?

Perhaps the novel – written in 1948 and published in 1949 – by English novelist, essayist, journalist, and critic Eric Arthur Blair – has finally come true.
