|Plot Summary of Fear of Flying|
|"Isadora Wing is a writer who has been sent, along with her husband, a psychologist, to write an article about a psychologists' convention in Vienna. She ends up meeting a man she is intensely sexually attracted to and spends the week cheating on her husband, who is sexually withdrawn, with him. Isadora must decide either to stay with her unfulfilling husband or pursue an uncertain future with her unpredictable lover. Throughout the novel, there are flashbacks to Isadora's childhood on the Upper West Side, her first marriage to a man who went insane, and her time in Germany at the beginning of her second marriage."
