Originally published in 1973 by Holt, Reinhardt and Winston, Fear of Flying, the internationally bestselling story of Isadora Wing by Erica Jong, coined a new phrase for a sex act and launched a new way of thinking about gender, sexuality, and liberty in our society. On the 40th anniversary of its initial publication, we, the original publisher, are reissuing this seminal work with a new introduction by Jennifer Weiner.
