Erica Jong (2016 Event)
Back in 1973, Erica Jong’s Fear of Flying introduced the beguiling Isadora Wing and her idea of ‘zipless’ no-strings-attached sex. The book became a bestselling icon of the sexual revolution. Now, in this event recorded live at the 2016 Edinburgh International Book Festival, Jong presents Fear of Dying, the coming-of-age story of a 60 year old woman who happens to be Isadora’s friend. Alongside a continued appetite for sex, Isadora and friend face their fear of ageing and the spectre of death. Chaired by Ruth Wishart.
