9780099576518: Fear Of Fifty

FEAR OF FIFTY is an incendiary book, more controversial and more personal than anything Jong has previously written - this is the real story behind her life, the truth behind FEAR OF FLYING and her other novels. Jong addresses the problem of being a woman of the 'whiplash generation' which saw its expectations raised and dashed and raised and dashed again. In many ways Jong is typical of the fiftysomething generation of women but in so many others the author of FEAR OF FLYING will always be exceptional - unihibited, revolutionary, flamboyant, passionate, sexy and witty, like this story of her life.
