This was one of our stand-out reads of the month. Yes, it’s about Werewolves and Vampires but the brilliant brutality and beauty of the story telling combined with the suspense, human emotion and page turning plot make it irresistible. Unsurprisngly the film rights have already been sold to Blade Runner director Ridley Scott – but please don’t wait for the film.

Synopsis

The Last Werewolf by Glen Duncan

A veil of melancholy has fallen over Jacob Marlowe. He's the last of his kind. Hunted by his enemies and haunted by his past, he is worn out by centuries of decadence and debauchery, and by the demands of his lunatic appetites. He decides to submit to the authorities at the next full moon. However, as Jacob counts down to suicide, a violent murder and an extraordinary meeting plunge him straight back into the desperate pursuit of life.

Reviews

'The Last Werewolf is written with such scandalous ferocity and such grizzly humour it feels like the literary equivalent of howling at the moon. Not since Lon Chaney and John Landis has lycanthropy been such a blast, and Glen Duncan offers more danger, gristle and lunatic brilliance per sentence than any writer I can think of.'
Matt Haig

“A magnificent novel. A brutal, indignant, lunatic howl. A sexy, blood-spattered page-turner, beautifully crafted and full of genuine suspense, that tears the thorax out of the horror genre to create something that stands rapturous and majestic and entirely on its own” Nick Cave

“Remarkable for its humour, eloquence and self-aware intelligence. A deeply human narrative about the nature of story itself” Stella Duffy

“A rip roaring read … Duncan reclaims the supernatural for those of us who like our immortals to have a little less ‘emo’ and a lot more literary merit.” The Bookseller
