His hero is a casebook text, but at the same time he is the opposite, refusing to go along with the "character" given to him. The novel veers from nightmare to daydream to fiction about nightmare and dream. Twiddledum Twaddledu. s a brilliant, a marvelous novel. Mystifying and haunting, the book, like all great art, creates a world-in this case one of a mind with less and less connection to the world.

Peter Farrelly Shutterstock. Knowing Steven Spielberg and DreamWorks’ influence at Universal, Farrelly told us at a recent Awardsline screening for Green Book that he called his CAA agent Richard Lovett, who is the greatest agent on the planet by the way; I’ve been with him my entire career. I knew he represents Spielberg. He asked his rep ‘Any chance you can get this to Spielberg? I think he’s going to flip if he sees this. The pic was on a DCP which has a code, and Spielberg called every time he wanted to watch Green Book.

Crash-Landing is an exploration of modern day fear and failure. Its subject is self-delusion and self-fulfillment, sexual entanglements and midlife anxiety, marriage and existential loneliness.

Named after Lindbergh, his parents' hero, Charles Burg has neither the requisite head for heights nor the stomach to go it alone. Though destined for a fall, he contrives—by never looking down—to keep his marriage to Anne aloft through years of circling, of buffeting crosswinds, instrument failure and near collisions. When the crackup finally comes, the touchdown is not tragic, flaming wreck, but a nose-in-the-mud return to ground zero.

Both survive the forced landing. Anne comes through better: she manages to walk away from the wreckage. Chuck crawls off, emotionally grounded. We last see him fleeing across the Atlantic, winging toward an eighty-day crash cure at a rehabilitation camp fpr bereaved ex-husbands "some twenty kilometers south of Breat."

Or rather, that is the reader's first glimpse of this comedy's anti-hero, for events unfold in reverse order appearance - from the crackup back to the passionate beginning that led to the marriage. The story's counter-chronological movement gives the reader foresight, while Chuck, its first-person narrator, remains, happily or ironically, unaware of the laws of physics that govern the all too short duration of love's flight.
