I read this solely based on my love for The Psychopath Test and my faith was not rewarded. Ronson's a great writer, and Lost at Sea is at times entertaining and interesting, but this collection of investigative stories doesn't go anywhere. I was hopi ...more

fantastic read- Ignatius J. Reilly may be my favorite fictional character of all time, and Myrna Minkoff (the minx!) has a great, albeit fleeting, role. My pyloric valve may never be the same.
