Additional Notes

From The Publisher*

At last, the definitive book about perhaps the best cabin crew dramedy ever filmed: View From the Topstarring Gwyneth Paltrow.InAyoade on Top, Richard Ayoade, perhaps one of the most ‘insubstantial' people of our age, takes us on a journey from Peckham to Paris by way of Nevada and other places we don't care about. It's a journey deep within, in a way that's respectful and non-invasive; a journey for which we will all pay a heavy price, even if you've waited for the smaller paperback edition.Ayoade argues for the canonisation of this brutal masterpiece, a film that celebrates capitalism in all its victimless glory; one we might imagine Donald Trump himself half-watching on his private jet's gold-plated flat screen while his other puffy eye scans the cabin for fresh, young prey."

Review Quote*

"Ayoade on Top is a brilliant satire of film, academia, commerce and Richard Ayoade. It is his funniest creation yet and, page for page, the funniest book I've ever read." -Jessie Eisenberg
