Looking round that filthy room, with raw meat lying among refuse on the floor, and cold, clotted saucepans sprawling everywhere, and the sink blocked and coated with grease, I used to wonder whether th...ere could be a restaurant in the world as bad as ours. 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 in 1933, 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.
