"A rollicking tale...a tour de force."―Newsweek

Discovered on the doorstep of a country estate in Wiltshire, England, the infant Fanny is raised to womanhood by her adoptive parents, Lord and Lady Bellars. Fanny wants to become the epic poet of the age, but her plans are dashed when she is ravished by her libertine stepfather. Fleeing to London, Fanny falls in with idealistic witches and highwaymen who teach her of worlds she never knew existed. After toiling in a London brothel that caters to literati, Fanny embarks on a series of adventures that teach her what she must know to live and prosper as a woman. Soon to be a major Broadway musical. Reading group guide included.

About the Author:

Erica Jong is the author of eight novels―including Fear of Flying―six books of poetry, and several works of nonfiction. She lives in New York City and Connecticut.

Review:

"Jong... filled a gap in the great tradition of the picaresque novel. Fanny had to be written, and Erica Jong was the right person to write it. Linguistically, Fanny is a tower of strength.... Jong has gone farther than Joyce."
