Burning Down George Orwell's House by Andrew Ervin

A darkly comic debut novel about advertising, truth, single malt, Scottish hospitality??"or lack thereof??"and George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four.

Ray Welter, who was until recently a highflying advertising executive in Chicago, has left the world of newspeak behind. He decamps to the isolated Scottish Isle of Jura in order to spend a few months in the cottage where George Orwell wrote most of his seminal novel, Nineteen Eighty-Four. Ray is miserable, and quite prepared to make his troubles go away with the help of copious quantities of excellent scotch.

But a few of the local islanders take a decidedly shallow view of a foreigner coming to visit in order to sort himself out, and Ray quickly finds himself having to deal with not only his own issues but also a community whose eccentricities are at times amusing and at others downright dangerous. Also, the locals believe??"or claim to believe??"that there??s a werewolf about, and against his better judgment, Ray??s misadventures build to the night of a traditional, boozy werewolf hunt on the Isle of Jura on the summer solstice.
