Whose last (or latish) novel was their best?
I imagine there are few writers who turned out their best work at the end of life. But...
Fyodor Dostoyevsky wrote THE BROTHERS KARAMAZOV as his final novel at age 60. A case can me made that this was his best and if not (CRIME AND PUNISHMENT) it certainly shows no diminution of talent.
Who else held the torch high later in life?
