About this deal

Though a few of the pieces didn't really go anywhere, all foreplay and no climax, if you will - alien hunting with Robbie Williams, is one that left me scratching my head - most are solidly written, absorbing studies of unusual and provocative subject matters. and so many more highly interesting people and stories that time and space do not allow me to describe. Jon realises that it's possible for our madness to be a force for good when he meets America's real-life superheroes, or a force for evil when he meets the Reverend 'Death' George Exoo who has dubiously assisted in more than 100 mercy killings. Through the eyes of Maf we’re provided with an insight into the life of Monroe herself, and a fascinating take on one of the most extraordinary periods of the twentieth century.

Collected here from various sources including the Guardian and GQ America are the best of his adventures. Despite the fact that he tells us that Gumbel has had significant criticism leveled at him, Ronson only quotes a single complaint that is clearly entirely hearsay. I'm looking forward to expanding my little expedition into the world of weird much further after this book. because that is obviously something that should be included in any chapter concerning the anal rape of underage boys.The Amazing Adventures of Phoenix Jones Jon follows a group of real-life superheroes as they try and fight crime on the streets of America. As an interviewer he doesn't ask the hard questions, but he asks the kind of questions that I might ask.

They include a couple of murder/suicide cases, the economic class issues in America, and the sad story of Richard Cullen who committed suicide after becoming hopelessly in debt. He seems to find special people and special circumstances and tells the story in around 15 pages which makes the book easy to drop in and out of. Jon Ronson is always entertaining: his persistent curiosity and willingness to grab a flight to go ask so-and-so about such-and-such seems so audacious while at the same time feeling perfectly natural.

Jon Ronson is fascinated by madness, strange behaviour and the human mind, and he has spent his life exploring mysterious events and meeting extraordinary people. King's friends are interviewed, and are used as the conduit to read the victim statements, so that we can have the full force of things like: "Deniz reads the statement with mock, burlesque horror.
