Living Lost: Why We're All Stuck On the Island
J. Wood
Garrett County Press
Publish Date
January, 2007

Cultural criticism based on the Lost narrative and how it intersects with the experience of war, terrorism, misinformation and message management.


Publisher's summary

"Miracles, viruses, plane crashes and acts of terror perpetrated by a group of Others: This is the perplexing and radical world of the television show Lost. With wit and insight, J. Wood explores the show's strange engagement with the contemporary experiences of war, (mis)information, and terrorism, and argues for an idea as weird as the show itself: That we're all stuck on the island."
