r everyone, I who no longer write, who deny myself the pleasure, the luxury of writing. COLETTE NOVEMBER in Connecticut. The flaming leaves of October are just beginning to succumb to the bareness of winter.

I usually adore Erica Jong's books. Her writing is so natural, assured and comfortable, but even Jong's good writing could not make up for how dislikable Isadora has become. It also didn't help that Jong conceded that Isadora was her doppelganger rather than acknowledge the book's flaws. Parachutes and Kisses chronicles more exploration of self with regard to the love she feels for her third husband and the obvious pain of divorce, especially when there is a child involved. This is another great book from Erica Jong about finder yourself and the inner strength that knowing who you are and what you're capable of brings.

Career, baby and a gloriously liberated love life; suddenly single, uninhibited Isadora is besieged by more suitors than she can keep track of: an Orthodox rabbi, a poetic DJ, the son of a famous sex therapist and, finally, Bean, the demonic-Byronic lover she's searched for all her life.

Fear of Flying was a page turner, despite a bit bumpy in the writing style. But Jong was so clever and the characters never stopped being interesting. In How to Save Your Own Life, she had matured as a novelist, and it's the best of all of hers (concerning the character of Isadora White Stollerman Wing Ace-- the best thing she every wrote was Fanny Hackabout Jones). Parachutes, however, is awful. Very hard to get through sections, where she's pontificating at the expense of the story. The device of now writing in the 3rd person, whereas the first two were in the 1st person, falls especially flat. It allows Jong to refer to herself in the most flattering, laudatory terms, and especially doesn't work, because the reader was used to it being autobiographical. As for this being a novel-- laughable, and Jong as essentially admitted as much. If you know anything about her life, she has changed the names and facts, but only slightly. Which means that her novels, at least the first three, are pretty much public rages against the people in her life. But whether or not you wish to believe the Isadora is Erica and vs., the character is completely unlikable and unsympathetic. She is incredibly self-centred, an addict in denial, makes terrible choices in men and falls back on the excuse that these are "women's issues" and feminism is the path. Jong takes herself and her influence far too seriously, thinks of herself as a great leader in the feminist movement, and it comes through all over this book. You weep for her little girl who suffers the most and whose mother just can't seem to focus on. It's worth reading if you want to know what has happened to Isadora and Josh, but be prepared for some parts you will want to skim through.

Just started reading Erica Jong and glad to know that she revisited the main character many times over the years.

Love this book. Couldn't wait to turn the page to see what happens next. Weather real or imagined it is funny. Those where the good old days. Ms. Erica really knows how to put the pen to the paper to brighten up the that time in history. I have read all her the books and they get funnier as she matures.

this is the 3rd book in the series and i was a little dissapointed. I loved Isadora in first person! but not so much in 3rd. Overall great book and read though.

I usually adore Erica Jong's books. Her writing is so natural, assured and comfortable, but even Jong's good writing could not make up for how dislikable Isadora has become. It also didn't help that Jong conceded that Isadora was her doppelganger rather than acknowledge the book's flaws. The book was full of paeans about Isadora - her beauty, her sexual prowess, her talent, her kindness, her generosity, whereas, her actions revealed an irresponsible person, alcoholic, drug abuser, neglectful mother, disillusioned martyr and overall whiner. This time, Isadora was the least interesting person in the whole book. When the book opens, Josh is leaving her, sour that his books are not selling well, and Isadora's grandfather is dead. It mentioned in passing Isadora's sisters, and I was greedy to know what was happening to them. It seems they didn't exist at all. Isadora claims she hasn't been with anyone since Josh left, but there are a string of five men, who she comforts instead of her young daughter. She suffers tax problems, whines and manipulates her future ex-husband, clouds her head with drugs and alcohol. When does she write? If the book was honest about what a dysfunctional person Isadora had become instead of heaping her with unfathomable praise for qualities in actuality she does not possess, I could be more empathetic. Talk about an unreliable narrator! Regardless of the descriptions of visceral sex and segments of her visit to Russia, I thought the tidbits about the numerous nannies her daughter, Amanda, had to endure were the most interesting part of the book. The problem is - Isadora is a bore, which made this book a very difficult read.

"How to Save Your Own Life" closed with Isadora basking in the sunset of Malibu with her young prince happily ever after and on that note we open to the first sentence of Parachutes and Kisses only to discover paradise in Malibu has eluded our heroin. Isadora Wing has been through analysis, found writing success, a third marriage, and a child only to discover she married a child and then had one with him.

Distraught and lost, Isadora journeys through another divorce, tax problems, single motherhood, and endless nannies looking for her demon lover. Parachutes and Kisses chronicles more exploration of self with regard to the love she feels for her third husband and the obvious pain of divorce, especially when there is a child involved.

This is another great book from Erica Jong about finder yourself and the inner strength that knowing who you are and what you're capable of brings. If you read Erica Jongs' book: Seducing the Demon Writing for My Life, which is somewhat of a short memoir, you might recognize some of the characters in Parachutes and Kisses.

A wonderful book!
