Heathrow’s new writer-in-residence

The English novelist Tony Parsons is going to be writer-in-residence at Heathrow Airport. He’s been commissioned to write a collection of short stories about the workers and travelers found in this huge airport, reports The Guardian. Parsons is following in the footsteps of Alain de Botton, who wrote a book about his experiences as writer-in-residence two years ago.

The novelist plans to “wander”, speaking to cleaners, firemen, pilots and air traffic controllers, as well as harassed passengers.
