Travel writer Julia Cooke's exhilarating portrait of Pan Am stewardesses in the Mad Men era.

3 stars out of 5

"a piece of storytelling, it is not without pockets of turbulence"

Come Fly the World has a very different resonance now than it would have had in 2015 when Cooke conducted her first stewardess interviews. ‘If only,’ I whisper, imagining this summer’s nine-hour drive to spend three midge-tormented nights opposite Oban ferry terminal. At a time when that 1960s notion of air travel as decadent and exceptional is experiencing an unexpected revival, this book may not be quite the full Pan Am dry martini you crave, but it could be the G&T in a plastic glass you need.
