Author(s): Erica Jong
Compulsive daydreamer Isadora Wing doesn't want much - just to be free and to find the perfect, guiltless, zipless sexual encounter. Pursuing this ideal across two continents, she discovers just how hard it can be to make one's dreams come true. Though Isadora fears flying (in all possible senses), she forces herself to keep travelling, risking her marriage and even her life for her own special brand of liberation. This intensely witty and exuberant novel is about how she achieves her freedom and loses her fear.
Novelist and poet Erica Jong lives and writes in New York, Connecticut and Vermont, with her daughter and her husband. Fear of Flying was her first novel and catapulted her to international fame, selling over ten million copies worldwide. It became one of the top-ten bestselling novels of the 1970s.
