Lost at Sea: The Jon Ronson Mysteries
Jon Ronson is fascinated by madness, strange behaviour and the human mind. He’s been on patrol with America’s real-life superheroes; gone to a UFO convention in the Nevada desert with Robbie Williams; interviewed a robot and asked her if she has a soul; travelled to the Alaskan theme town of North Pole (where every day is Christmas Day) to investigate a high-school murder plot; met a man who tried to split the atom in his kitchen and another who is preparing to welcome aliens to earth. He talks about these frequently hilarious, sometimes disturbing, but always entertaining stories in this special event.
