Aloft, Chang-Rae Lee

Another airport purchase but surprisingly good. More than just readable. Hero is a bit of an antihero who has let life happen to him. Again, the best part was excerpted in the New Yorker. I like the voice of the narrator and can say that his is company I would enjoy. Rather a hapless but fairly lucky middle-aged man whose daughter announces pregnancy and Hodgkin's at the same time but won't remedy either. Also a lot about flying in a little plane and the joys of travel (the actual travel part of travel). Summation: some hilarious parts but a pat ending.
