Duncan recommends Bowie Book Club book #4

“And I ain’t got no money”

Following last month’s recommendation (Spike Milligan’s Puckoon), Duncan Jones has posted his fourth selection for the Bowie Book Club on Twitter. It’s George Orwell’s 1933 memoir, Down and Out in Paris and London. After yesterday’s curve ball (it was April 1st), here’s what Duncan really tweeted a couple of days ago:

Duncan Jones @ManMadeMoon March 31st

Its going to be a busy month in the Jones household what with the new baby incoming! Will be a shorter read, & NOT one from dads 100 list.

It will instead be one he had me read & Ive wanted to go back to for a while... George Orwell's - Down & Out in Paris & London.

Here’s the synopsis:

    '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.

As Duncan mentioned, Down and Out in Paris and London is NOT from DAVID BOWIE'S TOP 100 BOOKS list, though 1984 plus Inside The Whale And Other Essays, both by George Orwell, are in the list.

If you don’t do Twitter (where you can respond to Duncan directly), feel free to leave your thoughts about this book in the comments section.
