One of Orwell’s earlier novels this relates the strange story of a young unmarried woman who is seemingly content to keep house for her father, a village rector. After a dinner with a local bachelor she wakes eight days later in the Old Kent Road in London’s East End with amnesia and no idea how she came to be there. Being without funds she accompanies some vagrants to Kent for hop-picking and then returns to London where she ends up sleeping rough in Trafalgar Square.
