This year we published Suzette Field's A Curious Invitation: The Forty Greatest Parties in Literature. Parties are at the heart of literature, they're where the drama happens; this book is a compendium of who was there, what they wore, what was eaten and who said what to whom. In tribute to all the festivities in the book, we've asked our authors to tell us a little about their best parties, real and fictional.
Jon Ronson is the bestselling author of the hilarious and highly informative The Psychopath Test. His new book Lost At Sea, collection of mini-adventure stories of the chaos that lies on the fringe of our daily lives, is available now.
Read on to discover his various heroes of the real and virtual (Twitter) worlds, and his favourite books, of course.

Over the past month, many a giggle has been heard coming from the lift in the Picador offices. Why? Well, in honour of Picador's 40th birthday, Jon Ronson's fantastically funny contribution to The Picador Book of 40,40 Things To Do Before I Die: A Bucket List, was stuck up on one of its walls. Since we've all had such a good laugh, we thought we'd share it with you. Happy reading.
