Fear of Flying õ Weg von New York zu einem Psychoanalytikerkongreß nach Wien an dem ihr Mann teilnehmen und über den sie einen Artikel schreiben wird Die Maschine ist vollbesetzt mit Psychoanalytikern Bei sechs von ihnen war Isadora schon in Behandlung mit dem siebten ist sie verheiratet und mit einem achten wird sie in Wien eine heftige Affäre haben Hin und her gerissen zwischen dem achten Adrian und dem siebten Ehemann Bennett erlebt Isadora bei ihrer O dyssee kreuz und uer durch Europa alle Wonnen und ualen der Leidenschaft um am Ende Summer 1972A top editor at a publishing firm in NYC pokes his head into a break room and says to a young male intern who is pouring coffee “Hey kid come into my office for a minute will you?”The “kid” is a recent lit grad from Columbia University with a penchant for Joyce and Hardy and an innate distrust for this particular editor He starts to sweat immediately at the man's reuest but stays outwardly calm as he puts down the coffee cup and follows the editor into his officeThe editor makes a big show of inviting the young man in closing the door behind him and seating him comfortably on a small sofa He chooses to lean conspiratorially against his large deskThe intern battles the urge to bite his lower lip“How fast can you read kid?” the editor asks smiling“Fast sir”“Well son I'm happy to hear it You see that sweet piece of ass out there in the lobby? The one with the cotton candy hair and those sweet braless tits?”The intern slowly turns his head to look out the office windows and sees a nervous looking blonde seated on a sofa staring at him He nodsThe editor leans in closer “That there is a Miss Erica Jong She's a friend of a friend Some kind of poet too She's real appreciative that we're going to take a little look see at her manuscript Well that you're going to take a little look see while I take those tits out to an air conditioned lunch I've pretty much promised her we'll give her feminist lit a little whirl so don't break a sweat kid Just scribble some basic notes and advise her to knock off about fifty pages” He takes a manuscript off his desk and hands it to the internThe young man looks down at the manuscript then up at the editor to ask “ Is it feminist lit sir?”The editor stands and indicates that the other man should do the same Right before opening the door he slaps the intern hard on the back and says loudly in his ear “I don't give a fuck son” Two hours later The editor returns his entrance announced by his boisterous laughter He has an arm hooked under Ms Jong's arm and he ushers her in to an available office as he summons the intern with a uick flick of his hand He doesn't know the intern's name and this doesn't embarrass him in the least but he rubs the top of Ms Jong's back as he announces he's leaving her in the hands of “one of the best” with slightly slurred speech He shuts the door behind him as he leavesAfter a few polite exchanges the intern and Ms Jong sit down across from each other and the intern offers “I can't get over how much you physically resemble your protagonist Isadora Wing”Ms Jong laughs into her hand “Yes Of course We are the same woman”Intern Then do you mind if I ask Is this an autobiography?EJ Well it all really happened but no biographies don't sellThe interns pulls at his collar He's taken three aspirins since he started the manuscript and is sweating profusely now He coughs “So it's autobiographical but you want us to promote it as fiction?”EJ Oh yesIntern And my editor he led me to understand that you would classify this as feminist literature?EJ nods vigorously Oh yes NaturallyIntern But why feminist? I mean what exactly about it is feminist?EJ flicks back her head and laughs Well I believe you've noticed I'm a woman?The intern pulls at his tie as though imagining it's become a noose “It's just that your I mean Isadora's escapades are so dark so demeaning It's almost as though you don't respect I mean Isadora doesn't respect herself or ANY women And that scene with the man who can't be bothered to wipe his bottom and smears feces all over your sheets during lovemaking Ms Jong smiles wraps her hair playfully around her finger “Hot scene wasn't it?”The intern rubs his face with both hands Tries to keep his cool “And no disrespect Ms Jong but are you aware that you use three different tenses alone just in the first chapter? I wonder if you could clarify your storytelling vision to me?”EJ My writing coach always says “Write what you know”She leans back against the chair exposing cleavage She giggles “Daddy always said that a girl as pretty as I am will always make a big splash in this world” An hour later The intern knocks loudly at the door of the editor and is invited in The editor stays seated a Parliament cigarette hangs from his mouth “How'd we make out kid?”The mentally exhausted intern says “Put a naked woman on the cover and market it as erotica” and walks uickly out the doorThe book is published in 1973 and men with dirty asses and dirty toes the whole world over are shocked to discover their newfound love of feminist litThis review is a work of fiction and the reviewer feels that it was an appropriate albeit snarky response to being trapped in a room for four consecutive evenings with this “novel” kindle ☆ Fear of Flying Ù Erica Jong
