Fear Of Flying
The modern classic that changed the way we thought about sex
‘Bigamy is having one husband too many. Monogamy is the same’ – Anonymous (a woman)
Compulsive daydreamer Isadora Wing has come to a crossroads. Five years of marriage have made her itchy – itchy for men, and itchy for solitude.
Ditching her second husband during a work conference in Vienna she decides to cut and run, criss-crossing her way across Europe in search of the perfect no-strings-attached tryst – and she won’t let a little thing like a fear of flying get in her way.
Witty, fearless and exuberant, Fear of Flying remains as sensational today as when it was first published.
"This succes de scandale from 1973 remains funny, clever and perceptive." -- John Bungey * The Times * "Unbridled classic." * Daily Telegraph * "An intelligent, expressive examination of a woman's mind, and of her gradual understanding of what feminism means... Erica Jong was a pioneer...she was, and still is, honest, brazen, bold and funny... If you want an insight into what life was really like for clever, sexy women 40 or 50 years ago, and how far we've come, you could do a lot worse than pick up Fear of Flying." * ASOS * "Uninhibited, erotic, delicious" -- John Updike "Furiously good" * Guardian *
