Summary

The stories in Here, There and Everywhere are mainly from my exhausting, happy, frustrating, turbulent days after I became an air hostess with Ansett Airlines of South Australia. As well as portraying travel as it was in the 1970s and 1980s, they revisit attitudes in society, fashions and music when the world was more peaceful and travel was simpler and more pleasant as a result. 
‘Fasten your seat belts and prepare for take-off! Let flight attendant Lindsey Jane Doley take you to the back of the plane to sit with young hostesses and be privy to their secrets and adventures. A keen observer, with an eye for detail, Doley reminisces about her life on the airways in the 1970s and 80s, when free travel opened up the world for her. In-page entertainment includes quirky anecdotes, strange and sleazy passengers, foreign cities and romance. A born storyteller, Doley will have you on the edge of your seat, not knowing where the next chapter will land. Here, There and Everywhere is an entertaining and colloquial part of Australia’s airline history.’ – Jude Aquilina, poet and author 
‘A perfect peek behind the scenes at what life was really like as an air hostess in the bygone era of the 1970s and 80s. Poignant in places, laugh-out-loud funny in others, this book is a definite must-read.’ – David Blake, London author

    Let There Be Laughter - A...

    From the host of NPR affiliate’s Forum with Michael Krasny, a compendium of Jewish jokes that packs the punches with hilarious riff after riff and also offers a window into Jewish culture. 
    Michael Krasny has been telling Jewish jokes since his bar mitzvah, and it’s been said that he knows more of them than anyone on the planet. He certainly states his case in this wise, enlightening, and hilarious book that not only collects the best of Jewish humor passed down from generation to generation, but explains the cultural expressions and anxieties behind the laughs. 
    "What’s Jewish Alzheimer’s?" 
    "You forget everything but the grudges." 
    "You must be so proud. Your daughter is the President of the United States!" 
    "Yes. But her brother is a doctor!" 
    "Isn’t Jewish humor masochistic?" 
    "No. And if I hear that one more time I am going to kill myself." 
    With his background as a scholar and public-radio host, Krasny delves deeply into the themes, topics, and form of Jewish humor: chauvinism undercut by irony and self-mockery, the fear of losing cultural identity through assimilation, the importance of vocal inflection in joke-telling, and calls to communal memory, including the use of Yiddish. 
    Borrowing from traditional humor and such Jewish comedy legends as Jackie Mason, Mel Brooks, and Joan Rivers, Larry David, Sarah Silverman, Jerry Seinfeld and Amy Schumer, Let There Be Laughter is an absolute pleasure for the chosen and goyim alike.
