9780147516183: Last Magazine, The : A Novel

The year is 2002. Weekly news magazines dominate the political agenda in New York and Washington. A young journalist named Michael M. Hastings is an intern at The Magazine, wet behind the ears and determined to turn his internship into a full-time position. The one reporter at The Magazine who seems to actually work, A.E. Peoria, has just returned from Chad. Instead of reporting on the genocide he was told by his editors to focus on mobile phone outsourcing, as it's more relevant. And then, suddenly the United States invades Iraq and all hell breaks loose.

Book Description Plume, 2015. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "What a novel it is! Tenacity and perseverance were the qualities that helped Hastings become a star reporter for GQ and Rolling Stone, and they inform the novel's narrative, creating a story as engrossing as it is believable. While the characters are not always likable, they are unfailingly engaging. And the breakneck pace of the narrative is so unrelenting, it makes you wonder if Hastings lived as he wrote." Newsweek "Even from the grave Mr. Hastings has demonstrated anew an ability to reframe the debate. The novel.reads as vivid archaeology that reveals much about the present moment. The milieu of the book paints a picture of a treehouse where like minds connive and look for an opening. But far below them, there is the sound of sawing steady and implacable. The tree will fall.Remarkable."David Carr, The New York Times "Scathing, funny, rollicking." The Barnes and Noble Review "Frenetic and darkly funny." Rolling Stone "Terrifyingly funny .entrancing, compelling." Shelf Awareness " The Last Magazine is tender and brutal, worldly and inbred, high-minded and gross, smartly rendered and rough around the edges and quite often hilarious. The Last Magazine is the funniest, most savage takedown of the American news media since Fear and Loathing: On the Campaign Trail '72 , by his hero Hunter S. Thompson."James Rosen, The Washington Post "[ The Last Magazine ] is fast and funny and humane. When I put it down, it called to be picked up again." Dwight Garner, The New York Times "What makes this novel workreally, I can't think of a better little tome to take to the beachis that it's just so much fun, so wicked, so amusing, and so brilliantly observed. The caricatures of people living and dead (career-wise) are only part of its charm. I haven't read a better send-up of hackery since the last time I dove into Evelyn Waugh's 1938 classic Scoop ."Christopher Dickey, The Daily Beast "As a provocative piece of thinly fictionalized nonfiction, [ The Last Magazine ] is a posthumous mission accomplished.Hastings's book is a message in a bottle that has belatedly washed up on shore to force us to remember how we landed where we are now."Frank Rich, New York Magazine "That voice. That witty, subversive voice we thought we''d lost, is back for one last romp. Hastings decodes the culture even more incisively in fiction, with wild bursts of imaginative mischief. So damn funny."Dave Cullen, New York Times bestselling author of Columbine "[Hastings'] keen eye for the creatures of the New York media universe focuses on the fabricated lifestyles of that world''s desperate inhabitants. Here, no one is immune.The suffering amid the insufferable is comic gold, and Hastings had no time for heroes. The world he created is filled with lost boys stamping their feet for validation. This could be the perfect summer bro comedy. Paging Judd Apatow!"Mark Guarino, Chicago Tribune "A convincing account of the perils of war -- and of the journalistic wars of an institution under siege from New Media. The Last Magazine remains a loving account of a profession Hastings believed was honorable and tried to honor. Only the guilty have something to fear." Paul Wilner, San Francisco Chronicle "Surely Michael Hastings would have savored the taste of revenge had he lived to see his first novel, The Last Magazine published.The humor throughout is searing.entertaining."Sherryl Connelly, New York Daily News "Remarkable. Hastings, the novelist, reminds one at times of the early Robert Stone." Booklist "A messy, caustic and very funny satire. A ribald comedy about doing time in the trenches and the bitter choices that integrity demands." -- Kirkus. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_new_0147516188
