The Last Man Standing by Davide Longo

The MacLehose Press, an imprint of Quercus, deals with the translation of fiction into English (and to the publication of “a very few outstanding writers in English”). The imprint was founded by Christopher MacLehose.

The Last Man Standing by Davide Longo (was born in 1971 in the Province of Torino) and translated by Silvester Mazzarella is published in July (£12.99):

“Italy is on the brink of collapse. Borders are closed, banks withhold money, the postal service stalls. Armed gangs of drug-fuelled youths roam the countryside.”
