"The Last Magazine" is the debut novel from Michael Hastings, discovered in his files after his untimely death in June 2013. Informed by his own journalistic experiences, it is wickedly funny, sharp, and fast-paced: a great book about print journalism's last glory days, and a compelling first novel from one of America's most treasured reporters.
When Michael Hastings died, he was known as a reporter. The Last Magazine, just published posthumously, proves him a novelist as well. NPR's Rachel Martin discusses it with his widow, Elise Jordan. More at NPR.org
