Told with the wit and verve that characterised her debut novel, Karen McLeod’s memoir of flying as cabin crew offers a fascinating insight into the profound impact of long-haul life. Having come out as a lesbian she is forced to go back in after a colleague advises her that it’s not ok to be gay, unlike male cabin crew.
Brimming with vertiginous loops and extreme globe-trotting, against a backdrop of exotic locations, hotel bars and nightclubs, Karen slowly unravels as the inability to truly be herself reverberates.
This is the story of how Karen finally came into land. How she learned to look after herself and discovered her real self.
