Fear of Flying, a literary sensation when it was published in 1973, established Jong as one of her generation's foremost voices on sex and feminism. Forty-five years later, the novel hasn't lost its insight, verve, or jaw-dropping wit. This ebook features an introduction by Fay Weldon, and an illustrated biography of Erica Jong, including rare photos and documents from the author's personal collection.
Erica Jong has published over 25 books in 45 languages. Comfortable and eloquent in various genres, she has effortlessly switched between fiction, nonfiction and poetry.
