Down and Out in Paris and London

George Orwell

This unusual fictional account, which is in good part auto-biographical, narrates without self-pity and often with humor the adventures of a penniless British writer among the down-and-out of two cities. The Parisian episode is fascinating for its expose of the kitchens of posh French restaurants, where the narrator works at the bottom of the culinary echelon as dishwasher or plongeur.
