Orwell, George: Down and Out in Paris and London, v1, 28Apr2010
The recounting of a hard-up Englishman’s adventures while experiencing poverty; first as a plongeur in a restaurant in Paris, and then subsequently as a tramp in and around London.
Wikipedia calls it a semiautobiographical novel, but it reads like a non-fictional memoir, with critical commentary added.
Edited, with italics, accents, and footnotes provided.

Many thanks, Strether. Not read this for years. That's my weekend taken care of. Cheers. Neil
