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, 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, London Gordon Comstock has declared war on the money god and Gordon is losing the war Nearly and rather moth eaten already a poet whose one small book of verse has fallen flatter than any pancake Gordon has given up a good job and gone to work in a bookshop at half his former salary Always broke but too proud to accept charity he rarely sees his few friends and cannot get the virginal Rosemary to bed because or so he believes If you have no money women won t love you On the windowsill of Gordon s shabby rooming house room is a sickly but unkillable aspidistra a plant he abhors as the banner of the sort of mingy lower middle class decency he is fleeing in his downward flight br br In i Keep the Aspidistra Flying i George Orwell has created a darkly compassionate satire to which anyone who has ever been oppressed by the lack of brass or by the need to make it will all too easily relate He etches the ugly insanity of what Gordon calls the money world in unflinching detail but the satire has a second edge too and Gordon himself is scarcely heroic In the course of his misadventures we become grindingly aware that his radical solution to the problem of the money world is no solution at all that in his desperate reaction against a monstrous system he has become something of a monster himself br br Orwell keeps both of his edges sharp to the very end a happy ending that poses tough questions about just how happy it really is That the book itself is not sour but constantly fresh and frequently funny is the result of Orwell s steady unsentimental attention to the telling detail his dry quiet humor his fascination with both the follies and the excellences of his characters and his courageous refusal to embrace the comforts of any easy answer
