Sobre l'autor

Ann Hood was born on December 9, 1956, in West Warwick, R.I. She attended the University of Rhode Island and New York University. For several years, she worked as a flight attendant before pursuing her dream of becoming a writer. Ann Hood had a dream of writing ever since her first "novel" at the mostra'n més age of 11. It was not until 1987, with the publication of Somewhere off the Coast of Maine that she received the recognition she had been longing for. Set in the period from the 1960s to the 1980s, the story deals with the lives of three women of the Vietnam era and their children. Strong on emotion and personal growth, Hood's writing frequently examines the intricacies of various levels of relationships. Other works include Something Blue, which also involves the association between three friends. (Bowker Author Biography) mostra'n menys

This is a rare case in which I may have enjoyed the written version over the audio. The narration was just average.

This is a memoir of a former TWA flight attendant, and covers the period from the pre-deregulation 1970’s to the merger wars of the early 2000’s. Ms. Hood presents a realistic portrayal of both the good and the bad sides of the profession – especially the sexist work rules that existed into the 1980’s.
