This book is crammed with original insights. For ten years or so Louis Theroux has focused his talents on making television programmes about various off beat characters on the fringes of USA society.
This book is a journey that sets out to find what has happened to some of the more interesting characters he has filmed. This journey takes Louis to a porn set in Los Angeles, to visit Idaho for a conference on neo-Nazis as well as the UFo victims located in Arizona.
He examines ''weird people'' to see what they tell us of our own secret natures.
This is Louis Theroux''s first book and I hound it thought provoking and somewhat surreal journey deep into the heart of weirdness.
