Book Review: 'Propeller One-Way Night Coach'

Details Writer: John Travolta; Genre: Fiction

There are better ways to mark Saturday Night Fever's 20th anniversary, but there are also worse examples of celebrity kiddie lit. Split the difference and you get this strange, flaky bedtime story about a carefree 8-year-old boy's first plane trip alongside his tippling single mom, which aviation buff Travolta wrote five years ago, distributed to 75 appreciative pals, and has only now — twist my arm! — released for public edification. He calls it ''a fable for all ages,'' but there's not a moral to be found in 42 pages of untrammeled, possibly unedited starry-eyedness. Unless it's that a Big Movie Star can easily publish even his slightest flights of fancy. C
