Host David Kestenbaum talks with author Walter Kirn about his new novel, Up in the Air. The book focuses on Ryan Bingham, a man who seems to spend much of his life en route from one city to another. While flying is an aggravation for many, Bingham finds a certain inner peace in the mass-produced, climate-controlled environment of business travel. (6:31-6:32) {Kirn, Walter, Up in the Air. Doubleday: 2001. ISBN: 0385497105}
