About the Author

Parker Posey is well known for her work with many independent filmmakers of her generation, including Richard Linklater, Hal Hartley, Zoe Cassavettes, and Rebecca Miller. Following her breakout role in the cult hit Dazed and Confused, she starred in Christopher Guest's classic mockumentaries and appeared in such Hollywood films as You've Got Mail, Superman Returns, Josie and the Pussycats, Scream 3, and Blade Trinity. Posey currently plays Dr. Smith in Netflix's remake of Lost in Space.


"Posey has a lot to say in You're on an Airplane ... Her style may seem dotty, but it's actually searingly direct. She tackles personal challenges that must have been painful...but still manages to find some loopy joy in the experience... She writes, jauntily, about her insecurities-her candor might even make you feel jaunty about your own."
