Dear American Airlines by Jonathan Miles [Houghton Mifflin, $22]


When Bennie Ford, a washed-up poet, gets stuck at O'Hare on the way to his lesbian daughter's wedding, he writes a letter that begins as a refund request but unspools into a wild, wide-ranging confession of artistic, romantic, and nearly every other type of failure. Once you get on Bennie's wavelength, Miles' novel enthralls and appalls with ease. Timothy Hodler
