Richard Russo, one of my favorite authors, has written a review for the New York Times of a book about being stuck in an airport. Well, about that and a number of other things. (Thanks to the Airline Biz Blog of The Dallas Morning News for bringing this to my attention.)
I’m sure I’ll end up reading the book, which is called “Dear American Airlines.” In fact, it sounds pretty interesting. It’s just that I’m enthralled right now by that literary classic, “HTML, XHTML, and CSS.” Yes. I am a bit of a geek.
Anyway, it puts me in mind of my favorite book about air passengerhood, “Up in the Air,” by Walter Kirn. It’s about a consultant who travels constantly and who nurtures a surreal obsession with his frequent flier miles. I highly recommend it.
