Overview

Airplane Reading by Christopher Schaberg

In Airplane Reading, Christopher Schaberg and Mark Yakich bring together a range of essays about air travel. Discerning and full of wonder, this prismatic collection features perspectives from a variety of writers, airline workers, and everyday travelers. At turns irreverent, philosophical, and earnest, each essay is a veritable journey in and of itself. And together, they illuminate the at once strange and ordinary world of flight.

This is a fantastic collection of 50+ short essays, all of them quick reads that let you dip in and out of the book. Personal favorites were the stories from Dustin Michael, Jane Armstrong, Connie Porter, Lucy Corin, Jason Harrington, Alison Kinney, and Peter Olson. Spoiler (not really): On page 26, the answer is "doe."
