Down and Out in Paris and London
Date: March 2021
Duration: 6 hours 21 minutes
Down and Out in Paris and London was Orwell’s first published full length work and is a heartfelt insight into often forgotten members of our society.
From the impoverished districts of Paris to the streets of London, Orwell recounts his experiences on the bottom rung in some of Paris’ most famous kitchens, his time on the streets of London with a colourful cast of characters, and offers biting social commentary on everything from accommodation and privilege to diet and language.
Part memoir, part social commentary, Down and Out in Paris and London is a sobering analysis of poverty and society in two of the world’s wealthiest cities.
