Jonathan Miles has spent years writing for various magazines and newspapers around the country. He is currently a columnist and editor at Men’s Journal and writes the biweekly cocktails column “Shaken and Stirred” for the New York Times.

In June of 2008 he published his first novel Dear American Airlines (read our full review here). Based loosely on the author’s own experience of being stranded without rescue at O’Hare, Dear American Airlines is a beautiful, insightful, and hilarious novel.
