    Description'You have talked so often of going to the dogs - and well, here are the dogs, and you have reached them'. George Orwell's vivid memoir of his time among the desperately poor and destitute in London and Paris is a moving tour of the underworld of society. Here he painstakingly documents a world of unrelenting drudgery and squalor - sleeping in bug-infested hostels and doss houses, working as a dishwasher in the vile 'Hotel X', living alongside tramps, surviving on scraps and cigarette butts - in an unforgettable account of what being down and out is really like.

    Maureen McDonald A very interesting read which will lend insight into the life of poverty.

    The tale is part-fact, part-fiction as it is woven out of events in Orwell's own life. And what an unusual tale he had to tell! by Maureen McDonald
