Down and Out in Paris and London - George Orwell

This picture was taken in Paris in 2008.

George Orwell is the pen name of the late English author Eric Arthur Blair.
Down and Out in Paris and London was first published in 1933.

"You thought it would be quite simple; it is extraordinarily complicated. You thought it would be terrible; it is merely squalid and boring. It is the peculiar lowness of poverty that you discover first; the shifts that it puts you to, the complicated meanness, the crust-wiping."
