Anyone who’s been alive since 1973 knows who Erica Jong is. It’s impossible to forget her sexy seminal (and 27-million-copy-bestselling) novel, “Fear of Flying.” It’s safe to say that Isadora Wing and her guilt-free “zipless _ _ _ _” were not just controversial, they were revolutionary.
Well now Jong has done it again with “Fear of Dying,” which tackles other deeply personal issues for and about women and their sexuality. And she’s coming to Stony Brook Southampton TONIGHT to talk about her books for Writers Speak Wednesdays. Get there early for her free author talk, which starts with a reception at 6:30 p.m. at Chancellors Hall on campus and continues at 7 p.m. in the Radio Lounge on the second floor, as I’m sure this one will fill up super fast!
