This strange book by the great Southern novelist is a genre unto itself: an oblique, lighthearted and philosophical toying with the distinctive foibles of late twentieth-century culture, in the form of a multiple choice, do-it-yourself personality evaluation. ''I love this book...it makes me squirm at times, in self-recognition'' (Edward Fuller, Wall Street Journal). 262 pp.

An Eighth Day View:

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 of all tastes and backgrounds. "Lost in the Cosmos" invites us to think about how we communicate with our world.
