Mediterranean Journey: A Young Woman’s Travels Through 1970s Europe is a collection of stories loosely based on my real life adventures traveling through Yugoslavia, France, Spain, Morocco and Greece during the 1970s. Unlike the usual backpacking, dope-smoking adventures that so many young people were having at the time, these stories are about a naive, language-challenged young woman’s encounters with cranky landladies, fish mongers, thorny cherry trees, on-the-floor bread making, serenading potato sellers, marauding centaurs and so much more as I made my way through 1970s Europe.

“Whether you are struggling to survive as an e-slave, piecing together a series of temporary or part-time jobs, or exhilarated by the rapidity of workplace change, you will find Ann Eyerman’s analysis of women’s work dynamic, engaging and hopeful.” — Maureen Hynes, Coordinator, School of Labour, George Brown College
“Stories of courage mixed with analysis, strategies and resources … you’ll want to give this to every office worker you know.” — Cindia Cameron, Organizing Director, 9 to 5, National Association of Working Women.
Ann’s chapter “Serving Up Service: Fast-Food and Office Women Workers Doing It With A Smile” looks at how the restructuring and downsizing of the labour source demands “leaner and meaner” employees who are influenced by those changes and can respond to them.
“This book is a triumph! It should be required reading in all Women’s Studies classes!” — Patricia Allen, University of California
