Listing Detail Tabs

A fascinating account of a chaotic life. With an airline captain for a husband, New Zealand Broadcaster Vivienne Pascoe has been uprooted again and again. Always on standby, Vivienne found traveling around the world with young children in the 40s and 50s hard work. Although she frequently craved stability, as her three sons grew up, she began to reap the benefits of her globetrotting existence: a chance meeting with the Beatles in Hong Kong; an introduction to ikebana (Japanese flower arranging) for which she became an international lecturer; and even a sighting of the volcanic eruption of Kilauea Crater in Hawaii. Written with humour and candour, 'Standby' conveys all Vivienne's frustrations and predicaments, and her considerable courage, strength and resilience.
