Editorial Reviews


“Erica Jong is a brilliant poet of analogies who makes the vibration of the senses a force that binds us together.” —The Nation

“A lyrical voice of eloquence and splendor. She can bring peace or wry laughter, shatter illusions or dispel loneliness.” —Los Angeles Times

“Erica Jong is a poet who owes nothing to anyone. Colloquial and seemingly casual, her poems run the widest gamut. Compounded of surprises, they are sly but penetrating, witty but passionate, bawdy and beautiful. It is a poetry to fall in love with.” —Louis Untermeyer

About the Author

Erica Jong (b. 1942) was raised in New York City, where she first attracted attention as a poet, winning various awards for two volumes of verse published in the early 1970s. But she is best known forher first novel, Fear of Flying, which struck a chord with a country still reeling from the sexual revolution. Though it initially drew controversy for its frank depiction of female sexuality, it has sold more than eighteen million copies worldwide.

Jong followed Isadora Wing through three more novels: How to Save Your Own Life, Parachutes and Kisses, and Any Woman's Blues. In addition to continuing to produce poetry, Jong has written historical fiction, most recently Sappho's Leap, and two memoirs, Fear of Fifty and Seducing the Demon: Writing for My Life
