Customer Review

on 3 November 2010
The subject of a rather unkind review in the Guardian when it first came out, Healy's autobiography deserves its inclusion as a Penguin classic. A wonderful book, with real literary merit, Down and Out in London and Paris pales into insignificance in comparison as a document of the lives of the destitute and broken. At a time when you can't avoid being overwhelmed by the avalanche of autobiographical tales of woe and misery in the nation's bookshops, this is the real thing. Would be great to have a follow-up to see how John's life has fared since those days on the streets. Can't recommend it highly enough. Deserves to be read much more widely than it's been so far.
