Fear of Flying
A novel by Erica Jong.
Though she also writes memoirs, such as Fear of Fifty (1994), Jong writes fiction so transparently autobiographical that perhaps there would be little to be added by an external biographer; no biography has yet appeared, though a useful collection of interviews with the author has been edited by Charlotte Templin (2002). None of her books has had quite the impact of Fear of Flying, but Jong's oeuvre includes many collections of poetry, essays, and novels, and continues to grow year by year.
