Paris, Beirut & Bordellos

Meet Hrair Mosgofian; Mosgo to his friends and colleagues is a flight attendant, a cartoonist, a philosopher and a jet-propelled Casanova, and his story is rich in incident and deep in anecdotes and personal reflections. So, fasten your seat belts and enjoy the ride. The times are crazy, the opportunities are limitless and the talk is always worth listening to when you fly with Mosgo. From his childhood in Beirut to his life in Paris in the last seventies, Mosgo tells his story with honesty, humour and style. The reader is allowed into the various worlds that he inhabits; from the crew cabins of planes flying to the most exotic destinations to the bedrooms of some of the most romantic cities in the world; from the kitchen of his grandmother's flat to the swinging clubs and bordellos of a very swinging era; and from the emotional highs of a jet setting lifestyle to the unbearable lows of broken relationships and living in the hell of a civil war-torn city. He introduces us to his acquaintances that are charming, odious, elegant and despicable, humane and inhuman - all drawn with an eye for detail and an ear for a well turned comedic reflection or engaging piece of personal philosophy. His description of Lebanese food will make you hungry, and his description of his compatriots' foibles will make you smile in recognition of human traits that we all shares.
