Down and Out in Paris and London


Out of stock


by George Orwell

Read by Michael Maloney

George Orwell’s first published work, Down and Out in Paris and London, is a vivid, sensitive account of the time he lived as one of the poor in the late twenties. In a bug-infested hotel, surviving only between the pawnbroker and a little teaching and writing, Orwell shocked the middle-class establishment with his observation of the misery, the hopelessness and the despair of the poor of a previously unexplored Paris and London.

Michael Maloney has worked extensively in the theatre, particularly with the RSC. Among his television credits are Mr. Wakefield’s Crusade and Love on a Branch Line, while his films include Truly Madly Deeply and In the Bleak Midwinter. He has also read Saint-Exupery’s The Little Prince and Dick Francis’ Wild Horses for Penguin Audiobooks.
