Lost at Sea, Jon Ronson
Having been a fan of Jon Ronson's writing for years, I was thrilled to read this collection of articles. They do go back some time, so some were familiar, but I loved the way they were grouped, and of course many were new to me. Especially strong entries included Santa's Little Conspirators, about the Alaskan town of North Pole, and Blood Sacrifice, about people looking to donate organs. As always Ronson finds the unusual, and writes about it with humor, wit, and empathy.
