About This 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.
