AUTHOR TRACK: Chris Bohjalian’s most recent previous title, The Sleepwalker, hit the USA Today and New York Times bestseller list. The hardcover edition of The Flight Attendant debuted at #8 on the New York Times bestseller list; it also appeared on the USA Today list, the Wall Street Journal list, and the national Indiebound list, signaling good things for the paperback.
TELEVISION NEWS: Kaley Cuoco, of the wildly popular show The Big Bang Theory, has optioned the rights to produce and star in a limited series adaptation, which was just picked up by Warner Brothers. The series will start filming this fall.
READING GROUP POTENTIAL: Cassie is a fantastic and complicated character, joining a host of unlikable and unreliable female protagonists in thrillers (such as The Girl on the Train and Gone Girl). Readers will love discussing her motivations and choices.
AVIATION: Chris has long been obsessed with air travel and for this novel has interviewed countless flight attendants for their best stories. The details he reveals are outrageous, bizarre, hilarious, and just plain addictive.
“Filled with turbulence and sudden plunges in altitude…. The very rare thriller whose penultimate chapter made me think to myself, ’I didn’t see that coming.’” —Maureen Corrigan, The Washington Post
“An expertly turned thriller.” —Mark Athitakis, USA Today
“Readers who enjoyed the imperfect heroine in Paula Hawkins’s The Girl on the Train and the anxiety-ridden paranoia of Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s Crime and Punishment will be hooked by this murder mystery.” —Library Journal (starred review)
“The stakes couldn’t be higher (literally)as Cassandra pieces together a mystery while working 40,000 feet above ground in Chris Bohjalian’s gripping The Flight Attendant. Read it before Kaley Cuoco stars in the upcoming series!” —Cosmopolitan
