In this moving and raw memoir, George Orwell describes his experiences living amongst the poorest and most destitute individuals in the cities of Paris and London. Contrasting his experience working as a poorly-paid plongeur in Paris with his life as a tramp in England, Orwell exposes the realities of life for those on the fringes of society. Written in the late 1920s, Down and Out in Paris and London was intended to draw attention to the lack of social infrastructure to support the poorest citizens living in the richest countries, and continues to be a telling portrait of life for those without education or resources. Be it mystery, romance, drama, comedy, politics, or history, great literature stands the test of time.
