Summary (From the publisher):

Isadora Wing was afraid of flying. She was also afraid of her own beauty, brains, physical appetites, and intellectual curiosity. Then, while on a trip to Vienna with her brilliant, handsome psychiatrist husband, Isadora met the man who embodied her most erotic fantasies—all her fears. What happened to Isadora was a wild, sexually extravagant bolt across Europe that had worldwide reverberations.

Edition Details:

Language: English

  • "An absorbing, passionate novel exploring totally new territory: the story of a highly sexual intellectual woman, a writer, and the craziness and the misery of the war between the mind and the body, the body wanting sex, sex, sex and love and safety, comfort; the mind wanting freedom, independence, the power to work, to write. The book is very alive and real. It is wonderfully funny and sad, witty and agonizing, brilliant, sensual, serious. It is a brave and honest book." Hannah Green
  • "An explosion of light and joy...One has to go back to Lolita to find an odyssey of misadventurous love-and-sex affairs as funny and sad, as witty and inventive, and as true as this. If you just read it for language, for a poet's shocks of insight, you'll get your money's worth. And you'll have a marvelous time, besides." Elizabeth Janeway
  • "She'll take you farther from home than you ever dreamed you'd go. And after this book, there may never be a way back." Lois Gould
