Coming Up for Air is a novel by George Orwell, first published in June 1939, shortly before the outbreak of World War II. It combines premonitions of the impending war with images of an idyllic Thames-side Edwardian era childhood. The novel is pessimistic—commercialism and capitalism are killing the best of rural England, "everything cemented over", and there are great new external threats.
