Down and Out in Paris and London Kindle Edition
Down and Out in Paris and London is one of the great accounts of life in the underclass: of being hard-up and hungry, of sleeping in seedy hostels and working in squalid restaurants. George Orwell’s first book—published in 1933, when he was not yet thirty—is alive with the sights and smells of poverty. It is a revelatory memoir of surviving at the margins.
George Orwell, born Eric Arthur Blair (1903–1950) was a teacher, novelist and journalist. He also served his country, including in the Home Guard during the Second World War. He later became the literary editor of the Tribune and wrote for the Observer and Manchester Evening News. The author of nine books, Orwell is best known for the allegorical Animal Farm (1945) and dystopian satire 1984 (1949). They have gone on to become two of the most influential books of the twentieth century.
‘Orwell was there long, long before me, “ripping the lid off” fine dining and depicting, in unsparing terms, the filth, the language, the subculture, the complete disconnect between what was seen in the dining room and what happened behind the kitchen doors…Down and Out in Paris and London changed my life.’ from Anthony Bourdain’s introduction in this edition
