About the Book (Excerpts & Info)
Set in the last half century of transformative cultural change, Jo-Ann Vegas memoir is a memory-keeper’s engaging and wide ranging coverage of how the times affected the author and the country. The popularity of ancestry research confirms the deep hunger for authenticity, connection, meaning, and self-knowledge.
Vega says, “I’d like readers to enjoy the journey, get reacquainted with history, and open the door to dialogue with others. That’s a picture of me on the cover, the background of the 50th birthday poster that others signed, a number who are no longer with us. All we have are moments to hold on to, capture, and try to make sense of.”
Part 1 is an extended eulogy to the immigrants of the south Bronx and the children who played on the streets without parental supervisionwith horse-drawn vegetable and fruit wagons, malocchio, bocce, macaroni in numbered boxes, Uncle Dan the bookie, and Mickey Mantle and Yogi Berra at Yankee Stadium. Part 2 details the impact of her famiglias relocation to suburbia, and her own coming of age during the relentless cultural upheavals of the 1970s. Part 3 is a bridge to today and life after work and parents.
Crafted from 40 years worth of writing and journaling, Moments in Flight also features useful websites, historical timelines, and a Book Club Discussion Guide.
award5-star review: https://readersfavorite.com/book-review/moments-in-flight-a-memoir …an inspiring memoir with interesting historical information. It also beautifully captures the tenacity of many immigrants who left their countries in the hope of a better future for their families.
… bold, sentimental…meaningful exploration of what it means to gradually discover one’s self… an interesting and deeply meaningful memoir.
Shawn La Torre, Story Circle Network https://www.storycircle.org/book_review/moments-in-flight-a-memoir/
This book is exemplary in its structure, organization, and pacing… voice and writing style. It has a unique voice, and the writing style is consistent throughout… A beautiful sense of the Italian culture and how that is both celebrated and preserved and how Vega and her family had moments of extreme difficulty in figuring out how to navigate life as immigrants.
