DOWN AND OUT IN PARIS AND LONDON

Synopsis

George Orwell's acclaimed memoir of his time among the poor and destitute in London and Paris. He documents a world of unrelenting drudgery and squalor; sleeping in bug-infested hostels and doss houses, living alongside tramps and surviving on scraps and cigarette butts, in an unforgettable account of what being down and out is really like.
