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 illuminating novel, Dennis Glover masterfully explores the creation of Orwell's classic work, which for millions of readers worldwide defined the twentieth century. Simultaneously a captivating drama, a unique literary excavation and an unflinching portrait of a beloved British writer, The Last Man in Europe will change the way you understand Nineteen Eighty-Four.
