Paul A. Toth's next major work, Airplane Novel, has already been noted as a Midwest Book Review "Reviewer's Choice." Airplane Novel will indeed prove to be the 9/11 novel; in fact, the only one whose author foresaw the need to depict an extraordinary event through extraordinary techique and, more importantly, selecting as the novel's narrator The South Tower, until now entombed in the usual mainstream "literary" novels, all of which seek closure through sentimentality, cliche and tripe. NOW AVAILABLE: Order from Amazon.com. KINDLE VERSION: Order here. For news, videos and even an "Imaginary Film Score," see the Airplane Novel Website. For a spectacular preview trailer narrated by Cary Grant, please visit Toth's Red Room video section. You may also view the trailer on YouTube. Toth's first three published novels, Fizz, Fishnet and Finale, form a nonlinear trilogy in which each novel explores the forrmation, deformation and, finally, eradication of identity. Toth has published over 150 short stories. His nonfiction has appeared in Salon.com. More-recent articles regularly appear in The Nervous Breakdown, and each can be accessed from this complete list . As to his blog, Violent Contradiction, Toth calls it his "captain's log of wandering thoughts."
