Ten of the best pigs in literature

At the Guardian, John Mullan named ten of the best pigs in literature.

One title on the list:
Animal Farm by George Orwell

Which animals do duty for Stalin and his henchman? Pigs, of course. Snowball and Napoleon lead the animals' successful revolt, but then fall out. Napoleon triumphs and rules the farm. The other animals become mere labourers, while the pigs drink whisky and become more and more like human beings.
Read about another novel on the list.

Animal Farm is one of Chuck Klosterman's most important books.
