The Art of Uncontrolled Flight

The Art of Uncontrolled Flight

A novel by


"Compelling and daringly honest, this story traverses the territory between childhood myths and a woman's experience of war."
Elizabeth Strout

Annie Shaw was captivated as a child by her father's elusive presence and his love of flying.

 After tragically losing her mother, Annie follows her father into the Air Force and becomes one of the first women to fly in combat during the Gulf War.

But life in the Air Force is not as glamorous as she imagined.

 Copilot, wife, and lover, Annie struggles to hold her separate lives together until the war itself intervenes.

This smart, tightly drawn work, based on the author's life, masterfully illustrates the great pleasures and tragedy that result from war.
