Product description


"This succès 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)


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.
