Sales of Orwell's 1984 have taken off after only a few days of Trump's "Administration", which has been characterized by actions similar to those of Orwell's famous novel. "Alternative facts" (aka blatant, obvious lies) have undoubtedly played a role in sending readers off to take a new look at 1984.
