More About Lost at Sea by Jon Ronson
 
 
 
Overview
New York Times bestselling author of The Psychopath Test Jon Ronson writes about the dark, uncanny sides of humanity with clarity and humor. Lost at Sea now with new material reveals how deep our collective craziness lies, even in the most mundane circumstances.
Ronson investigates the strange things we re willing to believe in, from robots programmed with our loved ones personalities to indigo children to the Insane Clown Posse s juggalo fans. He looks at ordinary lives that take on extraordinary perspectives. Among them: a pop singer whose greatest passion is the coming alien invasion, 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 edge of our daily lives."
