A Week at the Airport by Alain de Botton

A Week At The Airport: A Heathrow DiaryA Week At The Airport: A Heathrow Diary by Alain de Botton

Neat little essay and a gorgeous paperback, even if it does not, for me, quite put get to what it is that makes airports the weirdest and most confounding of public spaces. But it's good, though, with neatly drawn scenes and observations about the travelers and the workers who make Heathrow go. And the color photographs set throughout the text are wonderful.
