A fantastic book! It's as timely and interresting today as it was when it was published nearly 30 years ago. Some critics have compared this book to Henry Miller's Tropic of Cancer. It contains a lot of frankness with regard to sex, which some readers might see as vulgarity. It's about a woman's struggle to find herself. I highly recommend this book.

This is an absolute womens-lib classic! The first book written by a woman that includes graphic descriptions of sex, and talks about casual sex "like a man." A fun, uplifting read.

I read this book 30 years ago and loved it. The rollicking adventures of a woman discovering herself and some rules about life and men. A great read and relevent even today.

Wow! Chick lit from the 70's? Seriously, Jong's book was scandalous back then and it still remains a shocker! If sexual freedom means being crude and vulgar--well, Jong does that very well. A must read for every woman who has ever felt oppressed by men.
