The ‘Last American Man’ Wants to RetireHave you read Elizabeth Gilbert’s The Last American Man? I read it cover to cover once, while in college, entranced by the subject, this last American man, Eustace Conway. If you’ve read The Last American Man, it’s an interesting follow-up. From the intro:“I’m gonna save the world,” Eustace Conway tells me. But Eustace refers to light of a different sort: the very light of human salvation, glimpsed by his younger self.
