THE WALLS OF HEAVEN

Jet lag, one learns here, is the emotional upheaval which affects pilots. This is about all that could reasonably account for what takes place on this short run from London to Tokyo and bed to bed. Connelly, one of the jet pilots, after discovering his creamy Val seducing his sister, signs up with Argossy-World, a firm about to try out a made-in-Japan short haul jet. This then, while the flying time is minimal, charts the sexual calisthenics of (a) Connelly, with a woman in Jamaica who has been living in a disheveled moral fashion (b) Dorothy who now makes herself available to find out why her husband crashed (c) co-pilot Chester who lands a lovely Japanese girl. All of these men can apparently fly by the seat of their pants although they spend most of their time here without any. Jonathan Root is a pseudonym. Advisedly.
