About the Author

Runner, author, airline crew member, animal-rights advocate, human and especially gay rights fighter - and still a friendly, mostly-vegetarian Mr. Nice Guy. Jonathan was born and raised in apartheid South Africa, but has lived in Israel for over 40 years. Ever the activist, it's thanks to him that all airlines were forced to forbid smoking on flights to and from Israel. He lives a bourgeoisie life in Tel Aviv, with his long-term partner.

This is a fascinating one-of-its-kind book, written by a man with an incredible life story. Several story lines combine to encompass Jonathan's multiple dimensioned personal history: coming to terms with his sexuality, experiencing Apartheid, traveling the world as an airline attendant, living through momentous historical periods in Israel's history, fighting a courageous legal and civil rights battle... The book provides fascinating insights into the life of a gay man during the second part of the 20th century, evolving on his own while societies around him are not evolving fast enough. Jonathan may not be the typical rebel, but he politely yet firmly stands up against injustice, becoming the unlikely hero of the Israel gay rights movements. In between he finds himself involved in sexual adventures and romance, under terrorist attack, and experiencing mid-air emergencies... The book is enjoyable, inspiring and memorable.
