Erica Jong is still flying high 40 years after her first book launch.

The launch of the book signing tour for the paperback version of Fear of Flying took place at my bookstore in Paramus, NJ, in the early 70s after a week of publicity stills, lunches, parties, a boat ride and non-stop visits by the author and her publishers. It was quite a grand event and drew a huge crowd including actor Alan Alda, who lived nearby. Another famous neighbor and frequent visitor was Robert Ludlum. Erica took to the bright lights like a proverbial duck to water and we all had a lot of fun that whole week. 


It's great to see her still radiant and going strong after all this time!
