Exactly one year ago today, journalist and author Michael Hastings was killed in a tragic car accident. On the first anniversary of his death, his widow Elise Jordan presents her husband’s secret novel, found in his files after his death.

In “The Last Magazine,” Hastings drew on his journalistic experiences – from Newsweek intern to war correspondent – to serve up a cutting satire of the media.

Krystal Ball will  discuss this novel in her msnbc2 web show, Kystal Clear, next Wednesday at 11:30 am EST, but we want you to tell us what you think first!
