Word for Word Author Series: Jonathan Miles Author of ‘Dear American Airlines'
New York Times cocktails columnist, Jonathan Miles, soars with the story of a stranded airline passenger - and his letter of complaint that goes awry in his debut novel. A margarita blend of outrage, wicked humor, vulnerability, intelligence, and regret, ‘Dear American Airlines' gives new meaning to the term "airport novel" and announces the emergence of a major new talent in American fiction. Hosted by: Andy Battaglia, The Onion A.V. Club New York City Editor.
