T.J. Newman – #2346

Flying is the safest form of travel, yet it’s also weirdly common in disaster and thriller fiction. Why is that? Same reason we accept that someone can just fall into a vat of something and turn into a superhero: it’s interesting. Being trapped in a crashed plane underwater is about as interesting as it gets. One could even call it too interesting. Thankfully, however, it’s not a real story. It’s a non-memoir by T.J. Newman, and it’s called Drowning: The Rescue of Flight 1421.
