'It is altogether curious, your first contact with poverty.' To be poor and destitute in 1920s Paris and London was to experience life at its lowest ebb. George Orwell, penniless and with nowhere to go, found himself experiencing just this as he wandered the streets of both capitals in search of a job. By day, he tramped the streets, often passing time with 'screevers' or street artists, drunks and other hobos. At night, he stood in line for a bed in a 'spike' or doss house, where a cup of sugary tea, a hunk of stale bread and a blanket were the only sustenance and comfort on offer. Down and Out in Paris and Londonis George Orwell's haunting account of the streets and those who have no choice but to live on them. 'A man who looked at his world with wonder and wrote down exactly what he saw, in admirable prose.' John Mortimer… (més)

A fascinating glimpse into early 20th century poverty in Europe. It really gives good perspective on those who are food insecure, or without a stable place to live and work. After reading this, and [b:Homage to Catalonia|9646|Homage to Catalonia|George Orwell|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1394868278l/9646._SY75_.jpg|2566499]Homage to Catalonia, I'm starting to understand Orwell's perspective a bit more.

Brutal depiction of poverty in Paris and London, with descriptions of food-service work that both set your hair on end and bust a gut laughing. Absolutely fascinating and harrowing detail about homelessness in London and how one might survive on no resources. Orwell analyzes the social structure that allows for such a brutal wringing through of human bodies, as well as provides practical solutions and the reason why these practical solutions cannot possibly come to fruition. ( )

An excellent memoir, although one that is slightly fictionalized, based on the author's research "slumming it" amongst the poor. The work suffers from attitudes of sexism and anti-semitism, although less than one might fear. I plan to continuing reading Orwell's early work. ( )
  neilneil | Dec 7, 2020 |
I found this educational and enlightening at some level. I also found some of the vignettes and character descriptions interesting. In general, I have found I enjoy George Orwell's writing style, more journalistic in this case. Overall, I did not find Down and Out in Paris and London to be entertaining or to take a strong hold on my attention. I don't believe that my reaction was due to the sad or dismal outlook portrayed, as I typically do not feel negatively about that type of content. While I know similar problems exist today, the dated nature of the material made it difficult for me to relate in any way to the problems or potential solutions. ( )
  afkendrick | Oct 24, 2020 |
Fantastic read, it's Orwell's first full length book and takes a highly sympathetic view on homeless. Plenty of insights into the 1930s in general. ( )

The Rue du Coq d'Or, Paris, seven in the morning. A succession of furious, choking yells from the street. Madame Monce, who kept the little hotel opposite mine, had come out on to the pavement to address a lodger on the third floor.

[Chapter 30]

The next morning we began looking once more for Paddy's friend, who was called Bozo, and was a screever—that is, a pavement artist. . . . He was an embittered atheist (the sort of atheist who does not so much disbelieve in God as personally dislike Him), and took a sort of pleasure in thinking that human affairs would never improve.
