Nineteen Eighty-Four, sometimes published as simply 1984, was a novel written by George Orwell in 1949.

The novel is about a fictional dystopian society in the year 1984, where the public is under constant surveillance from a totalitarian government.

In 1986, Edna Strickland had a copy of Nineteen Eighty-Four in her apartment. This foreshadowed the dystopian Hill Valley that she would later create after Marty McFly accidentally changed the past in 1931.
