‘Funny and thought provoking’ - Financial Times

Fascinated by madness, strange behaviour and the human mind, Jon Ronson has spent his life exploring mysterious events and meeting extraordinary people. Collected from various sources, including GQ and The Guardian, Lost at Sea features the very best of his adventures.

Jon has been on patrol with America’s real-life superheroes and to a UFO convention in the Nevada desert with Robbie Williams. He has met a man who tried to split the atom in his kitchen and asked a conscious robot if she has a soul.

Frequently hilarious, sometimes disturbing, always entertaining, these fascinating stories of the chaos that lies on the fringes of our daily lives will have you wondering just what we’re capable of.

Now part of the Picador Collection, a series showcasing the very best of modern literature.

Compelling and eye-opening . . . hugely compulsive reading.
One of the finest comic writers working today.
Funny and thought-provoking.
