Ann Hood, author of best-selling fiction, a couple of memoirs, and editor of knitting books, returns with this informative and nostalgic look at her years as a flight attendant in the 1970s and 80s.
Hood really wants to be a writer and she’s also looking for some excitement and she loves to travel. So after college, she embarks on a grueling job search and eventually lands a job with TWA. She describes flight attendant training; how to deliver a baby, evacuate airlines, and mix a perfect cocktail back when flying was fun.
She covers deregulation and the sexism of the times. She weathered an oil crisis, furloughs, and a labor strike. And writing the entire time.
This is a story of empowerment and self-discovery. A fun read.
