The Booker-shortlisted author of His Bloody Project introduces two debuts with island settings. Norman Bissell’s Barnhill tells the dramatic story of George Orwell’s time in the farmhouse on the Isle of Jura, where he wrote what was to become Nineteen Eighty-Four. it reveals the private man behind the celebrated public figure, his invention of Big Brother, Thought Police, Newspeak and Room 101, and the creation of a masterpiece. Rich, haunting and rooted in Irish folklore, Molly Aitken’s The Island Child is a spellbinding debut novel about identity and motherhood, freedom and fate, and the healing power of stories.
