Down and Out in Paris and London




Four of George Orwell's most essential books, 1984, Animal Farm, Down and Out in Paris and London and Homage to Catalonia available for the first time in Vintage Classics with a stunning and unexpected new cover look

'You have talked so often of going to the dogs - and well, here are the dogs, and you have reached them.' George Orwell's vivid memoir of his time among the desperately poor and destitute in London and Paris is a moving tour of the underworld of society. Here he painstakingly documents a world of unrelenting drudgery and squalor - sleeping in bug-infested hostels and doss houses, working as a dishwasher in the vile 'Hôtel X', living alongside tramps, surviving on scraps and cigarette butts - in an unforgettable account of what being down and out is really like.
