Larry Mantle talks with Elliot Hester, a flight attendant for 16 years with a major airline, about his new book, Plane Insanity (St. Martin's Press), that chronicles the misadventures of both passengers and flight crews in a collection of scathingly funny stories about bad trips, peculiar co-workers, first-class stowaways and outrageous in-flight behavior.

This week's selections include: Black Hawk Down, The Shipping News, What Time Is It There?, and Italian for Beginners.
