Furex is a veteran of World War I and a Limousin stone mason. A communist when sober and red hot patriot when drunk, he is a regular at the bistro at the foot of the Hotel des Trois Moineaux. According to Orwell, Furex delivers roughly the same jumbled speech on French national identity every week, only to get sick, pass out, and wake up a Communist again.
