'The last step' is a novel about a middle-aged man, who is from the excessive challenges and dangers of life hiding in the shade of mediocre academic career. And his business and his personal desires are characterized by discomfort and embarrassment, because of (homo)sexual orientation, and because of the uncertainty to develop himself as a writer. He concludes that success and happiness are just a delusion for the naive. Among other things, because society does not reward nor encourage passion or talent, but nourishes and protects conformity and empty ambition.
