Down and Out in Paris and London Mass Market Paperback – 27 November 2017
Enhance your purchase
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 - 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.

The book itself is an embarrassment which Amazon have proudly put their name to for reasons only clear to themselves. It is riddled with errors (from character recognition scanning, not George Orwell’s mistakes!) and very cheaply produced.
My advice would to buy this excellent book in another format, this one is dreadful.
As I was reading this book I was also reminded of some of the stories which formed the classic socialism novel '' The Ragged Trouser Philanthropist'' which also looks at the poor and destitute of society in the early part of the 20th century. I liked the relationship which Orwell built with Paddy, the older Irish tramp. And we can all still shake our heads at the inequality in society, and the victimisation of the poor by those with wealth
I enjoyed the book, and it is a fascinating look ar society one hundred years ago.
