Everything clean and intact while showing some signs of slight aging...............Faced with late middle age and a life that has not quite provided all that youth expected, any number of males have taken to the open road and written about it. This is a different twist on that theme; Kisor, a critic for a Chicago newspaper, doesn't take to the open road, he takes to the open sky in a small Cessna. And not just any open sky; it is the open sky which the nearly forgotten Cal Rodgers followed in the first solo flight across the United States. Coincidentally, Kisor and Rodgers share the handicap of being deaf. This all makes for a leisurely and instructive read on flying, on living deaf in a hearing world, and -- gently -- on growing older and finding the new satisfactions rather than the disappointments of that fact. Kisor's writing is not particularly gripping and his journey is mostly uneventful. Rodgers' trip was much different, plagued by all manner of equipment and crash problems, some of them triggered by his own aggressive and overconfident actions. Kisor's episodic retelling of that journey, based on an unpublished work by a woman he meets along his own route, is the best part of Flight.
