    difference between last and latest

    I don't seem to understand the exact difference between last and latest in this sentence.


    "I didn't like his last one, but I couldn't put his latest one down until the last chapter.



    I mean that the latest of his books is also his last book that he has written. isn't it?

    Hence, the joke:

    Actor: Did you see my last film?
    Actress: I hope so!
