About: A tour of the underworld, conducted without hysteria or prejudice...The facts he reveals should shake the complacency of twentieth-century civilization if anything could; they are sensational yet presented without sensationalism - C. Day Lewis'It is the white-hot reaction of a sensitive, observant compassionate young man to poverty, injustice and the callousness of the rich,' writes Dervla Murphy, introducing Orwell's record of a period in the late Twenties when he lived among the tramps, dregs and plongeurs of London and Paris. 'It offers insights rather than solutions; but always insights have to preceded solutions...No one has ever claimed Down and Out is its author's best book, yet many of his admirers describe it as their favourite Orwell. Its flaws are numerous, but oddly endearing.'Written with so much simple force...the result is curiously beautiful - Compton MackenzieAn excellent book and a valuable social document - J.B. PriestleyCover Photograph: Behind the Restaurant by Bill Brandt
