Orwell's novel "1984" tops US bestseller list after "alternative facts"George Orwell's 1949 book has soared in sales during the first week of the Trump administration.

George Orwell's novel, "1984," has topped the bestseller list in the US this week after a string of inaccurate statements were made by US President Donald Trump and members of his administration.

It comes after Donald Trump's adviser coined the phrase "alternative facts" that referred to White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer's defense of Trump's assertion that the inauguration had been better attended than any before it.

Orwell's classic opus is a dystopian tale which takes place in a society where facts are distorted and suppressed in a cloud of "newspeak."
