Orwell, George: Down and Out in Paris and London. v1.2. 1 June 2009

Down and Out in Paris and London is Orwells' semi-autobiographical account of poverty in the late 1920's, whilst working in hotel and restaurant kitchens in Paris, and wandering the roads of London as a tramp. Darkly comic, it still has a lot of relevance today in trying to cross the divisions in society between the haves and have nots.

There is a previously posted LRF version of Down and Out in Paris and London on this forum, which closely follows the Gutenberg text.

This current version has been converted directly from the Project Gutenberg text, with the following enhancements:

Replaced "--" with em-dashes.
Proper use of opening and closing quotes, and apostrophes.
Correct use of italics for emphasised text, instead of CAPITALS.
"Smart" italics. Italics are rendered on the PRS with additional trailing white space, which can look a bit odd if italicised text is followed by punctuation, e.g., instead of "Is this italics ?", I have chosen to italicise the subsequent punctuation, e.g., "Is this italics?", which I think looks better.
Some corrections to typos.

I hope you like this version, and please let me know of any corrections.

Thank you--I have been wanting to re-read this for a while but I just can't find my paper copy. Now that is no loss!
