Max Gladstone has a “galaxy brain” - he is deeply and widely read, he has thought deeply about many different dimensions of life and existence, and he has a remarkable gift for transmitting his insights in the form of wickedly smart stories that are equal parts devastatingly beautiful and laugh-out-loud funny.
His recent novel Last Exit serves as the centerpiece for our conversation today. It asks: What happens when there's no other place to go? When you have come to the end of the road for the life you once imagined for yourself? What lies beyond that threshold?
Last Exit is a wild road trip that offers a glimpse of what comes next when your life has fallen to pieces: though it comes with great risk, you might discover beautiful possibilities beyond imagining just past the threshold that marks your current ideas about the world.
