Lost At Sea
by Jon Ronson
Exploring the dark, uncanny sides of humanity with both clarity and humor. Lost at Sea reveals how deep our collective craziness lies, even in the most mundane circumstances.
Jon Ronson investigates the strange things we’re willing to believe in, from robots programmed with our loved ones’ personalities to supernatural indigo children to ICP "juggalo" fans. He looks at ordinary lives that can take on extraordinary perspectives.
Among them: a pop singer whose greatest passion is the coming alien invasion, passionate assisted-suicide practitioners, and an Alaskan town’s Christmas-induced high school mass-murder plot. He explores all these tales with a sense of higher purpose and universality, yet they are stories not about the fringe of society; they are about all of us. Incisive and hilarious, poignant and maddening, revealing and disturbing—Ronson writes about our modern world and reveals how deep our collective craziness lies, and the chaos stirring at the very edge of our daily lives.
