Chuck Klosterman begins his new book with a puma in an airplane bathroom. Matters only get weirder from there: a band unintentionally gets a boost from a fanbase full of white supremacists; a Black Mirror-style procedure changes how couples approach parenthood; a cult member begins to have second thoughts.

After nearly a dozen books, essays galore, and decades of dissecting pop culture, Klosterman isn’t through wracking his brain over how we ingest the world around us. His latest, Raised in Captivity: Fictional Nonfiction, is a collection of 34 mind-bending trips through familiar territory: cults, pop musicians, athletes, reality deniers. [ more › ]
