Orwell, down and out in Paris & London.
on 26 March 2017
A very interesting book about the time Orwell spent living in Paris as a young struggling writer and the jobs he had to take to survive and pay his way.
The latter part of the book is about his return to London and how he survived day to day living on the streets with tramps and vagabonds and relying on charity for meals and a bed for the night.
This happened before he made his name as an author.
I read this book in an afternoon, I just could not put it down, a very good read!!
