Synopses & Reviews
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.
"This is a treat! J. Wood loves Lost, and it shows. This is a fast-paced, yet totally complete guide to Lost." Jennifer and Ryan Ozawa, The Transmission
