Editorial Reviews

Review

“An amazing tour de force.” —Cosmopolitan

“Erica Jong can write a historical novel that both honors its tradition with affectionate parody and creates its own full fictional reality.” —The New York Times Book Review

“A sexy adventure story which is a real page turner. [It] will surprise and delight her fans and win her many new readers.” —Ken Follett, author of The Pillars of the Earth

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
