JONATHAN MILES

Dear American Airlines (Houghton Mifflin)
"A flinty, funny, irreverent, and heartbreaking first novel. The writing reminded me of brilliant, early-days Martin Amis--except with redemption and hope."
--Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love
"There are a few simple rules for writing an effective letter of complaint. Keep it simple and straightforward. Never apologize. Include a possum-trapping scene. And always make it novel length. Anyone can do this, but only Jonathan Miles can also make it boozy and profane, honest to the glorious wretched bone, and beautiful, just beautiful."
--John Hodgman, author of The Areas of My Expertise
