it was amazing

Wonderful book. I'm not sure what Orwell was doing but he lived as a hand to mouth dishwasher in Paris and later as a tramp in London and described it all matter-of-factly. Is there a strassburg school of journalism?

Almost 100 years later, I was a short order cook and not much had changed working with the underclass.
