Originally published in 1973, the groundbreaking, uninhibited story of Isadora Wing and her desire to fly free caused a national sensation. In The New York Times, Henry Miller compared it to his own classic, Tropic of Cancer and predicted that this book will make literary history... It has sold more than 12-million copies. Now, after 30 years, the revolutionary novel known as Fear of Flying still stands as a timeless tale of self-discovery, liberation, and womanhood. Download and start listening now!

    " A real period piece, but funny and insightful. Has held up well. "

    " At first, I found FEAR OF FLYING hilarious. She talks nonstop about sex and analysis, dropping the F bomb like there's no tomorrow, espousing this funny social commentary about life and marriage, a quasi-feminist rant (very feminist for 1973), yet she loves it when men grab her behind (not feminist anyway you slice it). I was started reading it because it was the IT book in 1973. My mom, who would not normally read something like this, for example, read it. She HAD to read it. EVERYONE read it--and so did I, until about chapter 4, when I got really tired of the banter and disgusted by the sexual conquest ensuing between the protagonist and a old, out of shape, sunburnt, pompous ass. And as much as I wanted to like this book and finish it, I just couldn't read any more. So at that point, I read the summary at the end by Henry Miller, found out what happened in the end, and returned the book to the library, following my new mantra: Life is too short to finish books I don't like. "

    " Is one of the best erotic novels I ever read. The very feminist anti-moralist and openminded Isadora (main character) is the wife of a psychiatrist who pays less than little atention to her. She has a dream: "la encamada sin cierre relampago". She explores the conflict between loyalty and infidelity. "

    " the author expresses the fear of probably many (all?) women about what it means to give yourself up for a man, a baby, a relationship or your family, the fear of loosing yourself and the joy of finding yourself and in the general mess and upheaval life consists of. "
