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."
