Jong is the author of numerous award-winning books of poetry and novels includingFanny, How to Save Your Own Life, Parachutes and Kisses,Any Woman’s Blues, and the forthcoming Sappho’s Leap. She is also the author of the memoirFear of Fifty. She lives in New York City and Connecticut.
In Fear of Fifty, a New York Times bestseller when first published in 1994, Erica Jong looks to the second half of her life and "goes right to the jugular of the women who lived wildly and vicariously through Fear of Flying" (Publishers Weekly), delivering highly entertaining stories and provocative insights on sex, marriage, aging, feminism, and motherhood. "What Jong calls a midlife memoir is a slice of autobiography that ranks in honesty, self-perception and wisdom with [works by] Simone de Beauvoir and Mary McCarthy," wrote the Sunday Times (U.K.). "Although Jong's memoir of a Jewish American princess is wittier than either."
