    My book is called You're on an Airplane. It's a memoir pronounced with the emphasis on ?me?. Think of it like an actor who was cornered into writing. The opening premise of You're on an Airplane is that you're sitting beside Parker Posey on a flight, and with such close proximity ...

    Oh, Parker Posey. How I loved you. This was so badly written, it seemed like she wrote random interesting sentences or paragraphs on napkins, flung them in the air, and had someone else type them into a book. There was ZERO order to the memoir - not by chronology, theme, nothing. I was...

    There are few actors where I would watch a tv show or film just because they?re in it. Parker Posey is one of those actors. She?s not the most famous people out there, though she had a streak of indie films in the 90s. But Parker has been in some really great films (?Best in Show...

    You know that old saying, ?Never meet your heroes.?? ?Nuf said. ...

    I listened to this book on audio and it was read by the author and that's why I love reading a memoir in audio form. The added bonus to listening to this one on audio was that Parker Posey has written this as if she is chatting to the reader on an aeroplane and so we have added audio f...

    I think her quirkiness shines through even more by listening to the audiobook. Don't think I would have enjoyed it as much without her personality coming through the speakers. ...

    Have you ever been to a family reunion where you spend extended time with the aunt who has a reputation as being eccentric or a bit of a "free spirit"? While she comes off as a bit dotty, you realize that underneath she's lot a smarter than she lets on. Well, Parker Posey is that aunt....

    3.5 stars would be more like it. Enjoyably larky, with an especially artful and funny opening. But at a certain point, the lack of organization gets the better of her; like many celeb memoirs, the back half of the book suffers. I liked her stories about growing up in Louisiana (who kne...

    Parker Posey is the backbone of the film industry. Whether she knows it or not, she singlehandedly holds Hollywood together. Weaving seamlessly in between leading indie films and bouncy supporting roles in big budget flicks. In her memoir, Posey tells her life story to you, personally....

    Have you ever listened to an audiobook and then to listen to it again, right away? That?s how I feel about this book ???. I feel Parker and I are kindred spirits. ...

    I love Parker Posey but just couldn't get into this book, despite my initial enthusiasm when it was released. I appreciate that she tried a novel approach: the entire book is written as if she's your seatmate on a flight. It feels like something that might work as an improv sketch, but...

    **I received an ARC copy of this book through a Goodreads Giveaway in exchange for an honest review** I struggled to find words to say how I felt about this book, much like I struggled to finish this book. I was intrigued, then confused, then bored, then lost by the end. At the ...

    A memoir doesn't need to be entirely accurate to be truthful. I can't decide if this memoir rings true or not, it's titled "self-mythologizing" which leads me to believe that it's probably not as truthful as it could be, but I can't believe anyone would pretend to be this person if g...

    She is a gem. Original style, fantastic storytelling, and just plain heartwarming. I loved it. ...

    Too much sucking up to Woody Allen and Louis CK, not enough about Josie and the Pussycats. ...

    I got to interview Parker Posey about her new book for Shelf Awareness: http://www.shelf-awareness.com/reader... ...

    As dry, strange, and comforting as you would expect sitting next to a version of Parker Posey on a flight. The audio is a sheer and utter delight - from recipes to dog psychics to good advice to a gnarled family tree - she's a fucking cool person cresting 50 from a world and films that...

    Confession: This is my very first audiobook. I can get ridiculous with my purist mentality. If someone creates content with the primary intention that it will be read, I feel like I need to experience it how they intended to honor their work. As a reader, not a listener. Give me the wo...

    So the conceit here is that you've encountered Parker on an airplane, which she has to take to get places just like everyone else, and she's in a chatty mood whether you like it or not. Of course if you are a devoted Parker fan like me (ever since Party Girl if not before), you will lo...

    Much like a worthy independent movie of the 90s, Parker Posey's book wanders through eccentric adventures, characters and there's lots of colorful dialogue. This being a perfect format structured as a conversation between Posey (your friendly co-passenger on a plane) and you, the audie...

    Look. I'm quirky, I say things off the top of my head, and I like Parker Posey. But, I'd preordered this, and I just had such a hard time getting through it. And, I rarely give below a 4 rating (because if I can get through it, and there aren't glaring issues, I know the author worked ...

    Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha! This memoir reveals that Parker Posey is just as unique, eccentric, brilliant and weird as the characters she plays. The fact that the premise is you?re sitting next to her (and her dog Gracie) on a plane as she?s rambling on throughout the whole fli...

    Sounds just like her. (Is there an audiobook?) As befits the book conceptually, the digressions on family are better heard than read; as the book went on I ended up skimming most of that stuff. The impression I'm left with is that Ms. Posey knows who she is but rarely gets to be her...

    Zipped through this one while relaxing on the beach, and it was the perfect read for the occasion. It's written like a monologue with responses dropped here and there to an anonymous listener, suggestively the reader. It's witty, as we'd expect from Parker Posey, but also insightful. I...

    I adored this book. The premise is that you're sitting next to Parker Posey on an airplane as she tells you about her life - her childhood, her career, various moments in her life. The anecdotes aren't strictly chronological, but there is a kind of scatterbrained logic that feels like ...

    You know how, so often, you're a little let down to find out that the actor/musician/creative type is fronting somewhat, is not quite how you thought they would be or how they've presented themselves in - and through - their work? Not here. Parker Posey on the page is the same as the v...

    I truly enjoyed the book. It was written in the same chatty style that Parker embodies on screen and that was charming. I did think that some of the back story about her family -- and the recipes -- weighed this book down a bit. I wish that time was spent getting to know Parker a bit b...

    I loved this book! Party Girl and The House of Yes are two films that were huge for me growing up. Parker Posey is a voice you want to hear in your head - you know you?re doing it right when the voice agrees with you. I finished this book in two days and I will most likely get the au...

    Thoughtful, funny, and sad. A caveat: the chapters on Louis CK & Woody Allen are depressing. Posey is at her best when she?s the architect of her own story, so it?s difficult to read about her attempts to ingratiate herself to writer/directors or lamely apologize for their ...

    What a voice. Please write more, anything, write write write. This was so engaging and interesting and more than I could have hoped for. I was at times in tears laughing too. Even though the books are nothing alike I kept thinking, like how I felt with Mary Louise Parker's "Dear Mister...

    Sounds just like her. (Is there an audiobook?) As befits the book conceptually, the digressions on family are better heard than read; as the book went on I ended up skimming most of that stuff. The impression I'm left with is that Ms. Posey knows who she is but rarely gets to be her...

    Zipped through this one while relaxing on the beach, and it was the perfect read for the occasion. It's written like a monologue with responses dropped here and there to an anonymous listener, suggestively the reader. It's witty, as we'd expect from Parker Posey, but also insightful. I...

    My book is called You're on an Airplane. It's a memoir pronounced with the emphasis on ?me?. Think of it like an actor who was cornered into writing. The opening premise of You're on an Airplane is that you're sitting beside Parker Posey on a flight, and with such close proximity ...

    Oh, Parker Posey. How I loved you. This was so badly written, it seemed like she wrote random interesting sentences or paragraphs on napkins, flung them in the air, and had someone else type them into a book. There was ZERO order to the memoir - not by chronology, theme, nothing. I was...

    There are few actors where I would watch a tv show or film just because they?re in it. Parker Posey is one of those actors. She?s not the most famous people out there, though she had a streak of indie films in the 90s. But Parker has been in some really great films (?Best in Show...

    I listened to this book on audio and it was read by the author and that's why I love reading a memoir in audio form. The added bonus to listening to this one on audio was that Parker Posey has written this as if she is chatting to the reader on an aeroplane and so we have added audio f...

    I think her quirkiness shines through even more by listening to the audiobook. Don't think I would have enjoyed it as much without her personality coming through the speakers. ...

    Have you ever been to a family reunion where you spend extended time with the aunt who has a reputation as being eccentric or a bit of a "free spirit"? While she comes off as a bit dotty, you realize that underneath she's lot a smarter than she lets on. Well, Parker Posey is that aunt....

    3.5 stars would be more like it. Enjoyably larky, with an especially artful and funny opening. But at a certain point, the lack of organization gets the better of her; like many celeb memoirs, the back half of the book suffers. I liked her stories about growing up in Louisiana (who kne...

    My book is called You're on an Airplane. It's a memoir pronounced with the emphasis on ?me?. Think of it like an actor who was cornered into writing. The opening premise of You're on an Airplane is that you're sitting beside Parker Posey on a flight, and with such close proximity ...

    Oh, Parker Posey. How I loved you. This was so badly written, it seemed like she wrote random interesting sentences or paragraphs on napkins, flung them in the air, and had someone else type them into a book. There was ZERO order to the memoir - not by chronology, theme, nothing. I was...

    There are few actors where I would watch a tv show or film just because they?re in it. Parker Posey is one of those actors. She?s not the most famous people out there, though she had a streak of indie films in the 90s. But Parker has been in some really great films (?Best in Show...

    Have you ever been to a family reunion where you spend extended time with the aunt who has a reputation as being eccentric or a bit of a "free spirit"? While she comes off as a bit dotty, you realize that underneath she's lot a smarter than she lets on. Well, Parker Posey is that aunt....

    3.5 stars would be more like it. Enjoyably larky, with an especially artful and funny opening. But at a certain point, the lack of organization gets the better of her; like many celeb memoirs, the back half of the book suffers. I liked her stories about growing up in Louisiana (who kne...

    Parker Posey is the backbone of the film industry. Whether she knows it or not, she singlehandedly holds Hollywood together. Weaving seamlessly in between leading indie films and bouncy supporting roles in big budget flicks. In her memoir, Posey tells her life story to you, personally....

    Have you ever listened to an audiobook and then to listen to it again, right away? That?s how I feel about this book ???. I feel Parker and I are kindred spirits. ...

    I love Parker Posey but just couldn't get into this book, despite my initial enthusiasm when it was released. I appreciate that she tried a novel approach: the entire book is written as if she's your seatmate on a flight. It feels like something that might work as an improv sketch, but...

    A memoir doesn't need to be entirely accurate to be truthful. I can't decide if this memoir rings true or not, it's titled "self-mythologizing" which leads me to believe that it's probably not as truthful as it could be, but I can't believe anyone would pretend to be this person if g...

    I got to interview Parker Posey about her new book for Shelf Awareness: http://www.shelf-awareness.com/reader... ...

    As dry, strange, and comforting as you would expect sitting next to a version of Parker Posey on a flight. The audio is a sheer and utter delight - from recipes to dog psychics to good advice to a gnarled family tree - she's a fucking cool person cresting 50 from a world and films that...

    Confession: This is my very first audiobook. I can get ridiculous with my purist mentality. If someone creates content with the primary intention that it will be read, I feel like I need to experience it how they intended to honor their work. As a reader, not a listener. Give me the wo...

    So the conceit here is that you've encountered Parker on an airplane, which she has to take to get places just like everyone else, and she's in a chatty mood whether you like it or not. Of course if you are a devoted Parker fan like me (ever since Party Girl if not before), you will lo...

    Much like a worthy independent movie of the 90s, Parker Posey's book wanders through eccentric adventures, characters and there's lots of colorful dialogue. This being a perfect format structured as a conversation between Posey (your friendly co-passenger on a plane) and you, the audie...

    Look. I'm quirky, I say things off the top of my head, and I like Parker Posey. But, I'd preordered this, and I just had such a hard time getting through it. And, I rarely give below a 4 rating (because if I can get through it, and there aren't glaring issues, I know the author worked ...

    Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha! This memoir reveals that Parker Posey is just as unique, eccentric, brilliant and weird as the characters she plays. The fact that the premise is you?re sitting next to her (and her dog Gracie) on a plane as she?s rambling on throughout the whole fli...

    Sounds just like her. (Is there an audiobook?) As befits the book conceptually, the digressions on family are better heard than read; as the book went on I ended up skimming most of that stuff. The impression I'm left with is that Ms. Posey knows who she is but rarely gets to be her...

    Zipped through this one while relaxing on the beach, and it was the perfect read for the occasion. It's written like a monologue with responses dropped here and there to an anonymous listener, suggestively the reader. It's witty, as we'd expect from Parker Posey, but also insightful. I...

    I adored this book. The premise is that you're sitting next to Parker Posey on an airplane as she tells you about her life - her childhood, her career, various moments in her life. The anecdotes aren't strictly chronological, but there is a kind of scatterbrained logic that feels like ...

    Confession: This is my very first audiobook. I can get ridiculous with my purist mentality. If someone creates content with the primary intention that it will be read, I feel like I need to experience it how they intended to honor their work. As a reader, not a listener. Give me the wo...

    So the conceit here is that you've encountered Parker on an airplane, which she has to take to get places just like everyone else, and she's in a chatty mood whether you like it or not. Of course if you are a devoted Parker fan like me (ever since Party Girl if not before), you will lo...

    Much like a worthy independent movie of the 90s, Parker Posey's book wanders through eccentric adventures, characters and there's lots of colorful dialogue. This being a perfect format structured as a conversation between Posey (your friendly co-passenger on a plane) and you, the audie...

    My book is called You're on an Airplane. It's a memoir pronounced with the emphasis on ?me?. Think of it like an actor who was cornered into writing. The opening premise of You're on an Airplane is that you're sitting beside Parker Posey on a flight, and with such close proximity ...

    Oh, Parker Posey. How I loved you. This was so badly written, it seemed like she wrote random interesting sentences or paragraphs on napkins, flung them in the air, and had someone else type them into a book. There was ZERO order to the memoir - not by chronology, theme, nothing. I was...

    There are few actors where I would watch a tv show or film just because they?re in it. Parker Posey is one of those actors. She?s not the most famous people out there, though she had a streak of indie films in the 90s. But Parker has been in some really great films (?Best in Show...

    You know that old saying, ?Never meet your heroes.?? ?Nuf said. ...

    I listened to this book on audio and it was read by the author and that's why I love reading a memoir in audio form. The added bonus to listening to this one on audio was that Parker Posey has written this as if she is chatting to the reader on an aeroplane and so we have added audio f...

    I think her quirkiness shines through even more by listening to the audiobook. Don't think I would have enjoyed it as much without her personality coming through the speakers. ...

    Have you ever been to a family reunion where you spend extended time with the aunt who has a reputation as being eccentric or a bit of a "free spirit"? While she comes off as a bit dotty, you realize that underneath she's lot a smarter than she lets on. Well, Parker Posey is that aunt....

    3.5 stars would be more like it. Enjoyably larky, with an especially artful and funny opening. But at a certain point, the lack of organization gets the better of her; like many celeb memoirs, the back half of the book suffers. I liked her stories about growing up in Louisiana (who kne...

    Parker Posey is the backbone of the film industry. Whether she knows it or not, she singlehandedly holds Hollywood together. Weaving seamlessly in between leading indie films and bouncy supporting roles in big budget flicks. In her memoir, Posey tells her life story to you, personally....

    Have you ever listened to an audiobook and then to listen to it again, right away? That?s how I feel about this book ???. I feel Parker and I are kindred spirits. ...

    I love Parker Posey but just couldn't get into this book, despite my initial enthusiasm when it was released. I appreciate that she tried a novel approach: the entire book is written as if she's your seatmate on a flight. It feels like something that might work as an improv sketch, but...

    **I received an ARC copy of this book through a Goodreads Giveaway in exchange for an honest review** I struggled to find words to say how I felt about this book, much like I struggled to finish this book. I was intrigued, then confused, then bored, then lost by the end. At the ...

    A memoir doesn't need to be entirely accurate to be truthful. I can't decide if this memoir rings true or not, it's titled "self-mythologizing" which leads me to believe that it's probably not as truthful as it could be, but I can't believe anyone would pretend to be this person if g...

    She is a gem. Original style, fantastic storytelling, and just plain heartwarming. I loved it. ...

    Too much sucking up to Woody Allen and Louis CK, not enough about Josie and the Pussycats. ...

    Look. I'm quirky, I say things off the top of my head, and I like Parker Posey. But, I'd preordered this, and I just had such a hard time getting through it. And, I rarely give below a 4 rating (because if I can get through it, and there aren't glaring issues, I know the author worked ...

    Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha! This memoir reveals that Parker Posey is just as unique, eccentric, brilliant and weird as the characters she plays. The fact that the premise is you?re sitting next to her (and her dog Gracie) on a plane as she?s rambling on throughout the whole fli...

    Sounds just like her. (Is there an audiobook?) As befits the book conceptually, the digressions on family are better heard than read; as the book went on I ended up skimming most of that stuff. The impression I'm left with is that Ms. Posey knows who she is but rarely gets to be her...

    Zipped through this one while relaxing on the beach, and it was the perfect read for the occasion. It's written like a monologue with responses dropped here and there to an anonymous listener, suggestively the reader. It's witty, as we'd expect from Parker Posey, but also insightful. I...

    I adored this book. The premise is that you're sitting next to Parker Posey on an airplane as she tells you about her life - her childhood, her career, various moments in her life. The anecdotes aren't strictly chronological, but there is a kind of scatterbrained logic that feels like ...

    You know how, so often, you're a little let down to find out that the actor/musician/creative type is fronting somewhat, is not quite how you thought they would be or how they've presented themselves in - and through - their work? Not here. Parker Posey on the page is the same as the v...

    I truly enjoyed the book. It was written in the same chatty style that Parker embodies on screen and that was charming. I did think that some of the back story about her family -- and the recipes -- weighed this book down a bit. I wish that time was spent getting to know Parker a bit b...

    I loved this book! Party Girl and The House of Yes are two films that were huge for me growing up. Parker Posey is a voice you want to hear in your head - you know you?re doing it right when the voice agrees with you. I finished this book in two days and I will most likely get the au...

    Thoughtful, funny, and sad. A caveat: the chapters on Louis CK & Woody Allen are depressing. Posey is at her best when she?s the architect of her own story, so it?s difficult to read about her attempts to ingratiate herself to writer/directors or lamely apologize for their ...
