Fear of Dying: A NovelFear of Dying: A Novel by Erica Jong

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Vanessa Wonderman is forced to confront the mortality of her aging parents, her older husband, and a beloved family pet. Her daughter, meanwhile, is expecting a child. The themes of life, death, and sex and what they mean obviously run sharp throughout this entertaining, though sometimes a bit disjointed novel. It's more of an internal dialogue through the twists and turns of life, death, and aging rather than a story, but still it contains some smart insights and great lines. Enjoyable and smart.

[I received an advanced e-galley of this book through Netgalley. The book is due to be published September 8, 2015.]
