His name is Gregory Hidalgo Merchant, and he runs a call center in New Jersey, but when he unwittingly becomes the last man in America without an account on the dominant social network, the people start to call him Hidalgo: The One Who Walks Alone.
And so Gregory becomes Hidalgo. He becomes the symbol of rebellion and freedom and independence that his fans think he is and the media makes him out to be. But freedom and fame and fortune come with a price, and for The One Who Walks Alone, that price is simply to be alone.
A lighthearted, whimsical satire, The Last Free Man is the story of one man's ridiculous rise to fame and his even more ridiculous attempts to become un-famous again.
