Excited for your trip this summer? Most people think of airports as transitory spaces, purposed simply to move us on to more exciting destinations. We generally don't think of them as spaces in and of themselves: encompassing businesses, global enterprises, and employees' lives. Alain de Botton's week spent living in London Heathrow illumines much that is otherwise mysterious about airports. The perfect book to pack in your carry-on: thoughtful, fast paced, and above all, light weight.

A meditation on travel, literature, writing, politics and culture, The Art of Flight is the long overdue introduction of one of the great living Mexican writers to American readers. Part memoir, part travelogue, part something else, this book is a must for writers and others interested in creativity or thoughtful considerations of ways of being. Also great for fans of The Empathy Exams, The Argonauts, and, oddly, Knaussgaard's My Struggle.
