Fragment:

From the book's jacket insert: George Orwell's third novel, which has been out of print in this country since its original publication in the thirties, is vintage Orwell in its theme, its spirit, and its style. Dorothy Hare is the perfect daughter of a clergyman. She spends here time in good works, She cultivates good thoughts and pricks her arm with a pin when a bad one arises. And she does her best to bridge the gap between her father's fanciful view of his position in the world and such realities as the butcher's bill. But even Dorothy's strength has its limits, and one night as she works feverishly to finish the costumes for the church-school play, she blacks out. She comes to on a London street, clad in a sleazy dress and unaware of her identity. She is fair game for the tough but friendly Nobby and his cockney pals, who befriend her for the half crown in her pocket. There follows a series of adventures: "pickin' 'ops" in Kent; a night with the down-and-outers in Trafalgar Square-a scene that Richard H. Rovere has said: "may well be the finest thing in all of Orwell's fiction"; teaching in a grubby day school for girls-a whirl of episodes spun out with all the verve and vividness, the biting humor, and the complete authority that Orwell was able to command.
