“I’m 73, and my writing is better than it’s ever been. I’m freer, I have these beautiful grandchildren and a daughter who adores me, finally. I see that the greatest thing about getting older is how your judgment changes and how you come to understand the cycles of life. And you keep having these amazing flashes of understanding.”

— From an interview by Carole Burns with Erica Jong in The Washington Post, Sept. 9, 2015, p. C1. Erica Jong’s new book is “Fear of Dying.” It rhymes with “Fear Of Flying,” by the same author. Fear Of Flying was written and published in the last century. Click here: to see the Fear Of Dying book trailer.
