Moments in Flight: A Memoir
Jo-Ann Vega, author

Adult; Memoir; (Market)

Set in the last half century of transformative cultural change, a memory-keeper shares personal voyages of discovery beyond traditional boundaries of gender and culture. An engaging and wide ranging coverage of how the times affected the author and the country. Part 1 is an extended eulogy to the immigrants and an active childhood in the south Bronx. Part 2 details the impact of the famiglia's relocation to suburbia and coming of age during the cultural upheavals of the 1970s. Part 3 is a bridge to today and life after work and parents.

To say that Jo-Ann Vega has a way with words is clearly an understatement. Moments in Flight is the type of book that holds you hostage until the story ends. And then you want more. It engages the reader by combining an intriguing personal journey which intersects with the historical events of a tremulous time in our country...beautifully chronicles the different and painful stages we all experienced...while coming of age and finding 'our' voice. Vega has, through her prose, captured our imaginations and our hearts!

What makes Vega's memoir stand out is that she intersperses her personal experiences with observations about the momentous national and international events that occurred while she was growing up such as the assassinations of President Kennedy, Martin Luther King and Bobby Kennedy, the Vietnam War...sexual revolution...race riots...recreational drugs...Vega's diary entries from that time and her poems add to the picture she paints of the country coming of age when she did.
