Open Road Media,
Pub. Date:
Percy's second work of non-fiction is provocative, funny, infuriating and engaging, answering such questions as, why is it possible to learn more in ten minutes about the Crab Nebula, which is 6,000 light years away, than you presently know about yourself?

display_description Published at the height of the 1980s self-help boom, Lost in the Cosmos is Percy's unforgettable riff on the trend that swept the nation. Filled with quizzes, essays, short stories, and diagrams, Lost in the Cosmos is a laugh-out-loud spin on a familiar genre that also pushes readers to serious contemplation of life's biggest questions. One part parody and two parts philosophy, Lost in the Cosmos is an enlightening guide to the dilemmas of human existence, and an unrivaled spin on self-help manuals by one of modern America's greatest literary masters.T166
