- Dear American Airlines by Jonathan Miles - Review | | BookPage.
It was written like a bad blog entry or a rambling letter - which is what it is I can admit to skipping Dear American Airlines. Jonathan Miles. Frustrated, irate, and helpless, Bennie does the only thing he can: he starts to write a letter.
But what begins as a hilariously excoriating demand for a refund soon becomes a lament for a life gone awry, for years misspent, talent wasted, and happiness lost. Wildly entertaining …not just philosophically but emotionally rewarding.
http://taylor.evolt.org/boneg-cabrales-conocer-mujeres.php I loved this novel which is strong medicine indeed. Frustrated, irate, and helpless, Bennie does the only thing he can: he starts to write a letter. But what begins as a hilariously excoriating demand for a refund soon becomes a cri de coeur of a life misspent, talent wasted, opportunities botched, and happiness lost. A man both sinned against and sinning, Bennie pens his letter in a voice that is a marvel of lacerating wit directed at himself and at others, heart-on-sleeve emotion, and wide-ranging erudition, underlined by a consistent groundnote of regret for the actions of a lifetime—with all of it propelled by the fading hope that if he can just make it to the wedding, he might have a chance to do something right.
Dear American Airlines is a flinty, funny, irreverent, and heartbreaking first novel.
