Sugar in my bowl : real women write about real sex by Erica Jong( Book )

8 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 626 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When it comes to sex, what do women want? In this eye-opening and courageous collection, Erica Jong reveals that every woman has her own answer. Susan Cheever talks about the "excruciating hazards of casual sex," while Gail Collins recounts her Catholic upbringing in Cincinnati and the nuns who passionately forbade her from having "carnal relations." In "Everything Must Go," Jennifer Weiner explores how, in love, the body can play just as big a role as the heart. The octogenarians in Karen Abbott's sharp-eyed piece possess a passion that could give Betty White a run for her money. Molly Jong-Fast reflects on her unconventional upbringing and why a whole generation of young women have rejected "free love" in favor of Bugaboo strollers and Mommy-and-me yoga. Sex, it turns out, can be as fleeting, heavy, mundane, and intense as the rest of life. Indeed, Jong states in her powerful introduction "the truth is-sex is life."

Fear of fifty : a midlife memoir by Erica Jong( Book )

12 editions published between 1994 and 1998 in 3 languages and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A publishing event, a real-life novel, Fear of Fifty is the true story of the woman who twenty years ago showed her generation how to soar in Fear of Flying and now looks back - and ahead - to assess the costs, the rewards, and the meaning of the journey. Opening on her fiftieth birthday, Erica Jong's midlife memoir reads like fast-paced fiction as it flashes back and forth in time to tell at last the truths at the heart of her novels. Poet, novelist, essayist, Jong has forged one of the most visible, and volatile, careers in American letters, and as a charter member of what she calls the "whiplash generation," she has had a front seat on the roller coaster American women have been riding for the past decades. Raised to be Doris Day, growing up wanting to be Gloria Steinem, now rearing daughters in the age of Princess Di and Madonna, today's women have had their expectations raised and dashed and raised and dashed again, as they've watched themselves go in and out of style like hemlines. Now, as she and her contemporaries look for answers to the second half of their lives, Jong offers powerful, provocative insights into sex, marriage, and aging; feminism - past, present, and future; the writing life; motherhood and family; identity and love, loyalty and loss, drawn through the brilliant prism of her own experience. In chapters such as "Fear of Fifty," "The Mad Lesbian in the Attic," "How I Got to Be the Second Sex," "How I Got to Be Jewish," "Fear of Fame," "Seducing the Muse," "Dona Juana Gets Smart," "Becoming Venetian," and "How to Get Married," Erica Jong takes readers on an impassioned, outrageous, irreverent tour de force through the sea changes that have defined a generation. From technical virginity to the sexual revolution to the AIDS pandemic; from The Feminine Mystique to "political correctness"; from monogamy to open marriage and back again; from stay-at-home moms to moms who have won the right to be eternally exhausted; from sexual secrecy to sexual openness - Jong proves yet again her unique ability to tap into the inner lives of women and the issues that matter most to them. Fear of Fifty is an intoxicating, riveting read, free-wheeling and fun, warm, tough, and full of wisdom. Sure to be embraced by women everywhere, it is destined, like its classic predecessor Fear of Flying, to become required reading for a generation on the threshold of a new revolution
