Walker Percy's mordantly funny and wholly original contribution to the self-help book craze deals with the Western mind's tendency toward heavy abstraction. This favorite of Percy fans continues to charm and beguile readers (and literature students and scholars) of all tastes and backgrounds.Lost in the Cosmosinvites us, and ultimately dares us, to think about how we communicate with our world. "A mock self-help book designed not to help but to provoke; a chapbook to inveigle us into thinking about who we are and how we got into this mess."Richard Eder,Los Angeles Times Book Review "Original and imaginative, it conveys a serious, occasionally somber message in a vein of high comedy. I love this book. It is not to be read once through, but to be reread, savored, and pondered."Edmund Fuller,The Wall Street Journal "This is a stunningly innovative collection, for readers who like both to chuckle and to think hard."People
