orwell

Here is my best explanation:

'writer' is the definition.

'men in good health' is the subsidiary indication.
'men' becomes 'or' (I've seen this in other clues).
'in good health' becomes 'well' ('well' can be similar in meaning to 'in good health').
'or'+'well'='orwell'

'needing' is the link.
