Orwell, Down and Out in Paris and London

On Thursday, we will discuss the Paris half of George Orwell's Down and Out in Paris and London. Here are some questions you should consider:

1) How does Orwell survive in Paris? What are the work and survival options for the penniless?

2) What kind of international community does Orwell find in Paris?

3) How does he portray the French?

4) How does Orwell's experience in Paris compare to that of Hemingway's?

5) Will you ever eat in a Paris restaurant again? (i.e. What do we learn about the restaurant and hotel trade in Paris?)
