    'You have talked so often of going to the dogs - and well, here are the dogs, and you have reached them'. George Orwell's vivid memoir of his time among the desperately poor and destitute in London and Paris is a moving tour of the underworld of society. Here he painstakingly documents a world of unrelenting drudgery and squalor - sleeping in bug-infested hostels and doss houses, working as a dishwasher in the vile 'Hotel X', living alongside tramps, surviving on scraps and cigarette butts - in an unforgettable account of what being down and out is really like.

    O avtorju

    -George Orwell-

    George Orwell (1903–1950) je pisec, ki ga večina ljudi verjetno najprej poveže z romanom 1984 in s satirično alegorijo Živalska farma. Manj znana so njegova druga dela, med katerimi posebno mesto pripada Orwellovemu knjižnemu prvencu Na robu in na dnu v Parizu in Londonu, s katerim se je zavihtel na literarno prizorišče. Orwell si je vse življenje prizadeval za izboljšanje položaja zatiranih in prezrtih in o tem je brez zadržkov govoril v svojih žurnalističnih in literarnih besedilih. Glasno in pogumno je zagovarjal socialistična načela in obenem nasprotoval tako komunizmu kot izkoriščevalski kapitalistični miselnosti. Socialni angažma in izbran pripovedni slog mu opravičeno podeljujeta status enega najpomembnejših družbenih vizionarjev in pripovednikov 20. stoletja.
