"A playful and witty send-up of our media-mad culture. Methven is a comic writer to watch."—Jonathan Evison, author of West of Here
Posted September 5, 2013
Jon Methven is a master of humor and storytelling. In “This is Your Captain Speaking” you will find eccentric yet endearing characters including a celebrity semen trafficker, a reporter sanctioned as part of a divorce settlement to wear a puppet for a year, and an infamous pilot who steals a passenger’s dog during the crash rescue. These characters race to discover a conspiracy: the crash was staged as a massive public relations campaign for the airline. The novel’s over the top plot and scenes provide a satirical view of American culture’s obsession with media, Internet, and celebrities.
