“There are just a few writers whose work is so distinctive, definitive, and important their very name describes a whole world, like ‘Orwellian.’ Dennis Glover has written a novel that captures George Orwell as he began to write the book he saw as the culmination of all he’d learned in a bloody century about tyranny, fear, valor, and love.” ―Scott Simon, NPR, “Weekend Edition”

April, 1947. In a run-down farmhouse on a remote Scottish island, George Orwell begins his last and greatest work: Nineteen Eighty-Four.

Forty-three years old and suffering from the tuberculosis that within three winters will take his life, Orwell comes to see the book as his legacy―the culmination of a career spent fighting to preserve the freedoms which the wars and upheavals of the twentieth century have threatened. Completing the book is an urgent challenge, a race against death.

In this “highly compelling, deeply researched" (The National Review) novel, shortlisted for the 2018 Indie Book Award for Best Debut Fiction, Dennis Glover explores the creation of Orwell’s classic work, which for millions of readers worldwide defined the twentieth century, and is now again proving its unnerving relevance. Simultaneously a captivating drama, a unique literary excavation, and an unflinching portrait of a writer, The Last Man in Europe will change the way we understand both our enduringly Orwellian times and Nineteen Eighty-Four.
