Jennifer Fenn's debut novel inspired by true events, about a teenage boy who has stolen—and crashed—not one, but three airplanes. And each time he’s walked away unscathed. Who is Robert Jackson Kelly? Is he a juvenile delinquent? A criminal mastermind? A folk hero? One thing is clear: Robert always defies what people think of him. And now, the kid who failed at school, relationships, and almost everything in life, is determined to successfully steal and land a plane. Told as an investigation into Robert’s psyche, the narrative includes multiple points of view as well as documentary elements like emails, official records, and interviews with people who knew Robert. Ultimately, Flight Risk is a thrilling story about one teenager who is determined to find a moment of transcendence after everyone else has written him off as lost.

“James Nolan looks back unsparingly on a time few writers have faced with such clarity and compassion. There’s suspense and beauty on every page . . .” —Andrei Codrescu Flight Risk takes off as a page-turning narrative with deep roots and a wide wingspan. James Nolan, a fifth-generation New Orleans native, offers up an intimate portrait both of his insular hometown and his generation’s counterculture. Flight runs as a theme throughout the book, which begins with Nolan’s escape from the gothic mental hospital to which his parents committed the teenaged poet during the tumult of 1968. This breakout is followed by the self-styled revolutionary’s hair-raising flight from a Guatemalan jail, and years later, by the author’s bolt from China, where he ditched his teaching position and collectivist ideals. These Houdini-like feats foreshadow a more recent one, how he dodged biblical floods in a stolen school bus three days after Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans. Nolan traces these flight patterns to those of his French ancestors who fled to New Orleans in the mid-nineteenth century, established a tobacco business in the French Quarter, and kept the old country alive in their Creole demimonde. The writer describes the eccentric Seventh Ward menagerie of the extended family in which he grew up, his early flirtation with extremist politics, and a strong bond with his freewheeling grandfather, a gentleman from the Gilded Age. Nolan’s quest for his own freedom takes him to the flower-powered, gender-bending San Francisco of the sixties and seventies, as well as to an expatriate life in Spain during the heady years of that nation’s transition to democracy. Like the prodigal son, he eventually returns home to live in the French Quarter, around the corner from where his grandmother grew up, only to struggle through the aftermath of Katrina and the city’s resurrection. Many of these stories are entwined with the commentaries of a wry flâneur, addressing such subjects as the nuances of race in New Orleans, the Disneyfication of the French Quarter, the numbing anomie of digital technology and globalization, the challenges of caring for aging parents, Creole funeral traditions, how to make a soul-searing gumbo, and what it really means to belong.

In March of 1982 in Barnsfield, Massachusetts, attractive Patricia Kent turned thirty years old and was a successful realtor. She had taken over her fathers business after he suffered a debilitating stroke, which he was slowly recovering from. She was still grieving the loss of her husband, who had died suddenly four years earlier and after only four months of marriage. Through a girlfriend of hers who owned a small airplane, she met Jeremy Block, who worked as a small aircraft mechanic at a local airport. Jeremy was tall, handsome, and appeared to be a perfect gentleman. Before very long, he and Patricia began seriously dating and soon became engaged. Jeremys apparent kindness and feelings for her were comforting after the recent years of sadness she had experienced. Before long, Jeremy learned of Patricias excellent financial standing achieved from lucrative property sales commissions and wise stock market investments. When Patricia was sidetracked by a family tragedy, he absconded with twenty thousand dollars of her money and an almost priceless coin collection that belonged to her father. Devastated when learning of this, she hired a private detective to attempt to locate Jeremy and her fathers stolen coins and bring him to justice. Before long, facts surfaced that painted an entirely different picture of Jeremy Block. Instead of the well-mannered, caring young man he portrayed, he was actually a con man and a thief and was possibly responsible for several murders. With twists and turns, Patricia took on a mission to apprehend Jeremy with the help of the private detective.
