Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Revered and reviled for her smart, sexy novels about the power of women, including her imaginative tribute to the first woman poet, Sappho’s Leap (2003), Jong returns to poetry after a long hiatus. Expansive in her prose, she is pithy in her plumy poems, each word a gleaming drop of water, each line concise yet voluptuous. Her tone is teasing as she asks quintessential questions: “As for love— / why is it never enough / to save us?” Jong is funny, knowing, and mischievous as she critiques Edith Wharton and Henry James and turns the word risotto into a love spell. She offers a cycle of lyrics to Aphrodite and muses over the mysteries of sleep and death. She is warrior brave in piercing poems about what it means to be Jewish and in poems about our reckless destruction of the living earth. Jong is feline: curled up and purring on one page, leaping on another, claws and fangs bared. Sensual, wise, and gracefully artistic, she knows of what she writes. “To live is to be / uncertain. / Certainty comes / at the end.” --Donna Seaman

About the Author

Erica Jong’s twentieth and most recent book, Seducing the Demon, is a “brutally funny, searingly sensual [and] fiercely honest memoir,” said the New York Post. And the Los Angeles Times praised it as “irreverent, risqué and wonderfully unrepentant . . . We should all try to live up to [Erica’s] standard of self-awareness.” Jong has written three novels featuring Isadora Wing, her fictional doppelganger: Fear of Flying, with more than 18 million copies in print worldwide, How to Save Your Own Life, and Parachutes and Kisses, both recently reissued by Tarcher/Penguin. Jong is now at work on a novel featuring Isadora as “a woman of a certain age.”
