“This book will make literary history…because of it women are going to find their own voice and give us great sagas of sex, life, joy, and adventure.”
–Henry Miller

“There is something about Fear of Flying that remain perpetually relevant. That’s the question of what a young woman should do with herself: how she should reconcile her own ambitions with the dictates of society.” 
–Rebecca Mead, Allure

“Transcends being a woman’s book and becomes a latter-day Ulysses, with a female Bloom stumbling and groping, but surviving.”
Wall Street Journal

“Fearless and fresh”
–John Updike
“A picaresque, funny, touching adventure of Isadora Wing…on the run from her psychoanalyst husband, in quest of joy and her own true self.”
The New York Review of Books
“The boundary-breaking novel that redefined sexuality.”
O Magazine
“Extraordinary…at once wildly funny and very wise.”
Los Angeles Times
“The book that started it all by the woman who started it all. The one absolutely necessary read for any women of any generation who wants to see herself as intellectually and sexually alive—or any man who wants to understand the smart, sexually lively woman. As fresh as the day it was written and unmissable.”
–Naomi Wolf

“A great book, with a warm and funny heroine…It’s simply fun to read the adventures of the deeply likable Isadora Wing, and it’s sexy as hell.”
—NPR Guide to 2013’s Great Reads
