Talk: The Adventurist

J. Bradford Hipps turned to fiction after a 10-year career as a programmer. His first novel, “The Adventurist,” aims for a workplace and people invested with the joys and sadness of lived experience. Kirkus called it “just about perfect: incisive, eloquent, philosophical, and witty by turns. ..Hipps finds illumination about the meaning of life everywhere he looks.” Hipps also contributed an op-ed to the New York Times Sunday Review that explores a forgotten link between software and creativity.
