Looking for Comfortable Shoes

This is a story about change—the cultural change required of a Lebanese immigrant family new to the United States and the dramatic personal change that comes as the result of a family tragedy. The book is in two parts. Through a series of vignettes, the reader is introduced to a cast of unique characters in an immigrant family. Their stories are amusing and touching. The second part of the book is told in small stories and deals with the complex changes in a family after the attempted suicide and mental illness of the youngest child. The family's world as they knew it stopped. The author changed in such fundamental ways that it is as if she had two lives---one before this tragedy and one after. Her evolution took her from a traditional suburban housewife and mother to that of an ambitious career woman eager to grow and move away from all she had ever known. This is a true story told with great honesty, love, and surprising humor. "Jackie Ganem's memoir ... is a sensitive look at growing up in America in a Lebanese immigrant family. Yet, it is so much more. Ganem skillfully documents her own life as she progresses through the roles of a wife in a difficult marriage, a mother learning to relate constructively and compassionately to her troubled daughter, and a devoted partner to her lifelong companion. Ganem's prose is evocative and descriptively specific to the remarkable woman who is central to this story." —Jane Katims, author of Dancing on a Slippery Floor

AP Alley

In the early 1960's the Military knew they needed to develop a new method of intelligence gathering in locating the enemy in the jungles of Vietnam. Early attempts at developing a mobile method of interception and location of radio transmissions failed. Some successes occurred prior to the mid-1960's, but there was no large scale plan on how to develop this into a major project to help win the war in Vietnam. Approval comes in 1966 and the project is named Phyllis Ann. The author becomes a part of this project as a mission leader in the winter of 1968. This novel is based on his experiences both in Pleiku Vietnam and Misawa Japan during some of the most turbulent times in our history. The taking of the Pueblo, Russian bombers testing our defenses, and the secret war in Laos were all historical events this young airman was involved in.
