Erica Jong's memoir-a national bestseller-was probably the most wildly reviewed book of 2006. Critics called it everything from "brutally funny," "risqu? and wonderfully unrepentant," and "rowdy, self-deprecating, and endearing" to "a car wreck."* Throughout her book tour, Jong was unflappably funny, and responded to her critics with a hilarious essay on NPR's All Things Considered, which is included in this paperback edition. In addition to prominent review and feature coverage, Jong was a guest on Today and Real Time with Bill Maher. Even Rush Limbaugh flirted with Jong on his radio program: "I think she wants me. I think she's fantasizing about me." Love her, hate her, Jong still knows how to seduce the country and, most important, keep the pages turning.

Die coole New Yorkerin Vanessa Wonderman trennen rund zwanzig Jahre von ihrem älteren Ehemann und ihrer vergangenen Schauspielkarriere. Das Alter macht sie zunehmend unsichtbar und irgendwie ist ihr die Leidenschaft ihrer Jugend abhandengekommen. Der Tod ihrer Eltern klopft schon leise an, ihr Ehemann Asher bricht zusammen und ihr Pudel Belinda stirbt. Während Vanessa sich um ihre Familie kümmert und von Krankenhaus zu Krankenhaus hetzt, wird ihr Hunger nach Leben größer. Sie sehnt sich nach Körperlichkeit und ist bereit, für ihre Phantasien einiges auszuprobieren. Um dem Alter und dem nahenden Tod, der sie umgibt, zu entfliehen, macht sie sich mutig auf die Suche nach einer Affäre. Ihre Sehnsucht nach Leben, Glück und Leidenschaft treibt sie in die skurrile Welt des New Yorker Datingjungles und eröffnet ihr tiefe Einsichten in die großen Fragen des Lebens. Die Ikone der sexuellen Befreiung der Frau, Erica Jong, die mit ihrem Roman ›Angst vorm Fliegen‹ weltberühmt wurde, packt schonungslos und unverblümt die großen Themen des Lebens an. Komisch, heiter, mutig – bei Erica Jong geht es um alles: das richtige Leben, Liebe, den Frieden mit der eigenen Endlichkeit – und wie sie davon erzählt, ist einzigartig.

We've been warned: The Enemy is on the prowl; his demon forces are looking for breaches in our walls, so that they may enter into our midst and wreak havoc. In 12 Spirits Seducing the Church, Darrell McManus unmasks twelve destructive demons that are operating in our churches and in our homes today. This crucial information has been revealed by the Holy Spirit to Darrell over his forty-plus years of ministry as a pastor and evangelist. He has seen these destructive forces at work in both the family unit and in the corporate church setting—and he wants you to be aware of them too. Do you know a chronic nit-picker? Have you met anyone who is hyper-critical of spiritual leaders? Do you know a “control freak”? Have you ever been in the company of someone who consistently talks about the obstacles they are facing, rather than focusing on the promises of God? Do you know someone who complains and makes others feel bad in order to get his/her own way? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you, too, may have come in contact with one or more of these twelve seducing spirits. If you want to know for sure—and if you want to protect yourself, your home or your church from these destructive demons—read this book and take the tests at the end of each chapter. It could radically change your life!

Charlotte Brontë’s romantic gothic novel, featuring one of literature’s most memorable heroines. With her 1847 novel, Jane Eyre, Charlotte Brontë created one of the most unforgettable heroines of all time. Jane Eyre is an orphan, penniless and plain, but full of courage and spirit. She has endured incredible hardship to secure her humble status as a governess in the household of her brooding employer, Mr. Rochester. Jane’s sharp wit and defiant nature meet with Rochester’s sardonic temperament. The two become enmeshed in a deep, intense bond. But Rochester has a terrible secret—a remnant from his past that could threaten any hope of happiness with his only love. An unconventional love story that broadened the scope of romantic fiction, Jane Eyre is ultimately the tale of one woman’s fight to claim her independence and self-respect in a society that has no place for her.

If the sound bite is the new order, then how do we make every word count? In today's surplus world of communication overload and cultural clutter, writer and cultural critic Masha Tupitsyn turns to the media matrix of Twitter to explore the changing ways that we construct and consume narrative. Loosely applying the discerning aphorism?a compressed genre in itself?to a 21st century context, LACONIA: 1,200 TWEETS ON FILM offers meditations on film and popular culture that resonant with laconic meaning and personal insight while getting to the heart of the matter. Inspired by Chris Marker's free-associative film impressions in La Jet e and Sans Soleil, LACONIA is part film diary, part cultural inventory, and part mashup. Pulling from an array of film, popular culture, books, and mainstream news, it offers penetrating critical commentary on an increasingly muddled virtual world. LACONIA consists of brick by brick prose, as Tupitsyn thinks in sentences and lines that culminate in an architecture of thin

Seducing the Demon has introduced Erica Jong to readers who hadn't been born when Fear of Flying was published in 1973. Now one of her finest works of nonfiction -and a New York Times bestseller-is back in print with a new afterword. In Fear of Fifty, a New York Times bestseller when first published in 1994, Erica Jong looks to the second half of her life and "goes right to the jugular of the women who lived wildly and vicariously through Fear of Flying" (Publishers Weekly), delivering highly entertaining stories and provocative insights on sex, marriage, aging, feminism, and motherhood. "What Jong calls a midlife memoir is a slice of autobiography that ranks in honesty, self-perception and wisdom with [works by] Simone de Beauvoir and Mary McCarthy," wrote the Sunday Times (U.K.). "Although Jong's memoir of a Jewish American princess is wittier than either."

A prescient warning of a future we now inhabit, where fake news stories and Internet conspiracy theories play to a disaffected American populace “A glorious book . . . A spirited defense of science . . . From the first page to the last, this book is a manifesto for clear thought.”—Los Angeles Times How can we make intelligent decisions about our increasingly technology-driven lives if we don’t understand the difference between the myths of pseudoscience and the testable hypotheses of science? Pulitzer Prize-winning author and distinguished astronomer Carl Sagan argues that scientific thinking is critical not only to the pursuit of truth but to the very well-being of our democratic institutions. Casting a wide net through history and culture, Sagan examines and authoritatively debunks such celebrated fallacies of the past as witchcraft, faith healing, demons, and UFOs. And yet, disturbingly, in today's so-called information age, pseudoscience is burgeoning with stories of alien abduction, channeling past lives, and communal hallucinations commanding growing attention and respect. As Sagan demonstrates with lucid eloquence, the siren song of unreason is not just a cultural wrong turn but a dangerous plunge into darkness that threatens our most basic freedoms. Praise for The Demon-Haunted World “Powerful . . . A stirring defense of informed rationality. . . Rich in surprising information and beautiful writing.”—The Washington Post Book World “Compelling.”—USA Today “A clear vision of what good science means and why it makes a difference. . . . A testimonial to the power of science and a warning of the dangers of unrestrained credulity.”—The Sciences “Passionate.”—San Francisco Examiner-Chronicle
