Taking risks and being graced with just a bit of luck - this is how George Orwell got by when he was living penniless on the tough streets of London and Paris. In this semi-autobiographical book, George Orwell recounts his destitute days in two of the biggest cities in Europe. Despite his minuscule income, Orwell is anything but miserable and has some of the best adventures of his life. Our first edition paperback copy of the book, published by Harbrace 1961, is in excellent condition and is sure to inspire wanderlust for any reader.
