Publisher's Summary

Have you ever wondered what it would be like talk to Parker Posey? On an airplane, with Parker as your seat companion, perhaps? Parker's irreverent, hilarious, and enchanting memoir gives you the incredible opportunity. Full of personal stories, whimsical how-tos and recipes, You're on an Airplane is a delight in every way. 

In her first book, actress and star of movies such as Dazed and Confused, Party Girl, You've Got Mail, The House of Yes and so many more, Posey opens up about the art of acting, life on the set, and the realities of its accompanying fame. A funny and colourful southern childhood prepared Posey for a life of creating and entertaining, which not only extends to acting but to the crafts of pottery, sewing, collage, yoga and cooking, all of which listeners will find in this whimsical, hilarious, always entertaining book. Parker takes us into her childhood home and behind the scenes of the indie film revolution in the '90s, the delightful absurdity of the big-budget genre thrillers she's turned into art in a whole new way, and the creativity that will always be part of both her acting and her personal life.

With Posey's memorable, hilarious and poignant voice, her book gives the listener a feeling of traveling through not only a memoir but an exploration, meditation, and celebration of what it means to be an artist. Buckle up and enjoy the journey.

Unique, Quirky, Fun

You're on an Airplane by Parker Posey is unlike any other audiobook. Mix between narration and an audio play, it is a refreshing listen!

Love Parker Posey - not so much this book

Until now I've loved Parker Posey in anything she's been in - but this was painful to listen to (admittedly I only got 25 mins in before giving up). Some amusing bits, sure but not at all what I expected.

Stellar. Incredible, quirky and so well narrated.

Brilliant. Hooked from the start by her incredible eloquence on this autobiography of her interesting life. I can only hope we hear more of her narration. She would bring any book to life.
