New York Post “must-read” books
The New York Post named Burning Down George Orwell’s House one of its “must-read” books. That can be seen here.
“A satire of a satire? Ervin’s debut novel introduces us to Ray Welter, fictional Chicago ad man in existential crisis, who drops out to the Scottish isle of Jura — to rent the cottage where the father of modern satire wrote most of ‘1984.’ His plans involve a little bit of moping and a lot of the local single malt. Big Brother might not be watching him, but the island’s eccentric locals sure are and also, possibly, a werewolf. High comedy ensues as Welter tries to find himself, Orwell and the savage beast.”
