Synopsis:

A traveling consultant for a Denver-based management firm, thirty-five-year-old Ryan Bingham spends his life on airplanes and in airports as he travels around the country, pursuing his goal to accumulate one million miles in his frequent flyer account.


Review:

"Saturated with smart irony and ripe with a sense of dislocation....A mild treat from a...novelist still marking literary time somewhere between Don DeLillo and the authors of those fluffy confections readers inhale on summer beaches--or in airports."

Kirkus, 04/15/2001

Review:

"In the universe that Ryan calls Airworld, Mr. Kirn finds the makings of archly devastating post-social satire....UP IN THE AIR does such a savagely incisive job of explaining what makes Ryan run that it's a book worth its weight in frequent flier miles....[T]his smartly acerbic novel works best as social criticism, located somewhere between Joseph Heller's SOMETHING HAPPENED and Kurt Anderson's TURN OF THE CENTURY in its knowing glimpse of cool, businesslike anomie and mounting paranoia."

Janet Maslin, New York Times, 06/28/2001

Book Description: Bantam Doubleday Dell Publishing Group Inc, United States, 2002. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 202 x 131 mm. Brand New Book. Ryan Bingham s job as a Career Transition Counselor-he fires people-has kept him airborne for years. Although he has come to despise his line of work, he has come to love the culture of what he calls Airworld, finding contentment within pressurized cabins, anonymous hotel rooms, and a wardrobe of wrinkle-free slacks. With a letter of resignation sitting on his boss s desk, and the hope of a job with a mysterious consulting firm, Ryan Bingham is agonizingly close to his ultimate goal, his Holy Grail: one million frequent flier miles. But before he achieves this long-desired freedom, conditions begin to deteriorate. With perception, wit, and wisdom, Up in the Air combines brilliant social observation with an acute sense of the psychic costs of our rootless existence, and confirms Walter Kirn as one of the most savvy chroniclers of American life.
