Summary
Stranded at O'Hare while trying to fly to his daughter's wedding, middle-aged poet turned translator Bennie Ford begins a complaint letter to American Airlines that turns into a memoir of his missed opportunities and regrets.
Critique
Miles' first novel is funny, honest, intelligent and moving. Despite Bennie's flaws, he is an affectionate character. Full of digressions ranging from airport smoking to bathroom graffiti to conversation by post-it note, this novel is a page-turner. Highly recommended.
