1 Hill, Catherine Dancing In The Sea - Once The Hijack Was Over
Edinburgh Mainstream 2004 1840188774 / 9781840188776 First Edition Hard Cover Fine Near Fine 
A Fine uninscribed copy with near Fine complete dustjacket. The moving account of the author's experience in 1986 when she and her Italian boyfriend were hijacked by PLO terrorists on a Pan Am flight from Bombay to Germany when it stopped in Pakistan, enduring 17 hours of terror. The terrorists were convinced that Pakistani troops were about to storm the plane and forces as many as possible into the aisle to massacre them and in the slaughter that followed 21 people were dead and over 100 injured. Catherine was near fatally wounded, her left buttock blown off by a grenade and in spite of his own injuries, her boyfriend Picci saved her life by dragging her, bleeding heavily, from the plane. Over the years that followed she endured over 20 operations to heal her mutilated body and also began two major lawsuits, one against Pan Am and the other for medical negligence. She had to call on every resource she had, physical, psychological, emotional and financial as she attempted to build her life. The title refers to an epiphany she had whilst on holiday in the Caribbean where she and her boyfriend danced together for the first time since the hijack. 22 photographs.
