This unusual fictional account in good part autobiographical narrates without self pity and often with humor the adventures of a penniless British writer among the down and out of two great cities The Parisian episode is fascinating for its expose of the kitchens of posh French restaurants where the narrator works at the bottom of the culinary echelon as dishwasher or plongeur In London while waiting for a job he experiences the world of tramps street people and free lodging houses In the tales of both cities we learn some sobering Orwellian truths about poverty and society, Set in the days of the Empire with the British ruling in Burma this book describes corruption and imperial bigotry Flory a white timber merchant befriends Dr Veraswami a black enthusiast for the Empire whose downfall can only be prevented by membership at an all white club, The year has come and gone but George Orwell s prophetic nightmarish vision in of the world we were becoming is timelier than ever i i is still the great modern classic of negative utopia a startlingly original and haunting novel that creates an imaginary world that is completely convincing from the first sentence to the last four words No one can deny the novel s hold on the imaginations of whole generations or the power of its admonitions a power that seems to grow not lessen with the passage of time, As ferociously fresh as it was more than a half century ago this remarkable allegory of a downtrodden society of overworked mistreated animals and their quest to create a paradise of progress justice and equality is one of the most scathing satires ever published As we witness the rise and bloody fall of the revolutionary animals we begin to recognize the seeds of totalitarianism in the most idealistic organization and in our most charismatic leaders the souls of our cruelest oppressors
