About the Author

George Orwell, born Eric Arthur Blair (1903-1950) was a teacher, novelist and journalist. He also served his country, including in the Home Guard during the Second World War. He later became the literary editor of the Tribune and wrote for the Observer and Manchester Evening News. The author of nine books, Orwell is best known for the allegorical Animal Farm (1945) and dystopian satire 1984 (1949). They have gone on to become two of the most influential books of the twentieth century.

Reviews

`Orwell was there long, long before me, "ripping the lid off" fine dining and depicting, in unsparing terms, the filth, the language, the subculture, the complete disconnect between what was seen in the dining room and what happened behind the kitchen doors...Down and Out in Paris and London changed my life.' -- Anthony Bourdain, from the introduction
`The truth in chapters of real life...Extraordinary confessions.' * New Statesman *
`Unforgettable...A masterpiece: the most extraordinary series of vignettes, sketched with terrifying precision, of life deep in the greasy underbelly of destitution.' * Sunday Express *
