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.
Industry Reviews
`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.' -- Anthony Bourdain, from the introduction
`The truth in chapters of real life...Extraordinary confessions.' * New Statesman *
`Unforgettable...A masterpiece: the most extraordinary series of vignettes, sketched with terrifying precision, of life deep in the greasy underbelly of destitution.' * Sunday Express *
