JET LAG

Both true stories feature characters severed from conventions of time and space. Krassnoff is subjected to the ubiquitous, non-stop space of travel, while she produces a virtual home for her grandson in a succession of airport hotel rooms; Crowhurst simulates travel while floating in perpetual limbo. In an interesting play of gender stereotypes, the female reproduces a static, domestic space... in constant motion, while the male fictionalizes motion.... frozen in space, confined by the trappings of masculinity and the bravado of movement.
