A Field Guide to Getting Lost is a provocative investigation into the nature of loss, losing and being lost. Starting from the revelation that what is totally unknown to you is usually what you most need to discover, this book explores how finding that unknown quantity frequently requires getting lost to begin with. Exquisitely written, this book manages to be both a heartfelt memoir, and a highly accomplished cultural study, with the bird's eye perspective of one of the world's most perceptive critics. Taking in subjects as eclectic as mapmaking and memory, Hitchcock and Renaissance painting, this book confronts the challenge of living with uncertainty.
