I was watching BBC Breakfast today when they had an interview with Tony Parsons – best selling author of books such as Man and Boy. It seems he is to be the next writer-in-residence at London Heathrow Airport over the next week.
Following in the footsteps of Alain de Botton with his A Week At The Airport title, Tony is set to publish a book of short stories based on his time spent at the airport.
He said he will be allowed “total access” to the airport, and will thus use this privilege to speak to fire crews, passengers (coming and going), check-in agents, management and anyone else he comes across.
His book will be published by Harper Collins in October 2011.
