Famous quotes containing the words erica jong and/or jong:

    Everyone has talent. What is rare is the courage to follow the talent to the dark place where it leads.
    Erica Jong (b. 1942)

    Back in the days when men were hunters and chestbeaters and women spent their whole lives worrying about pregnancy or dying in childbirth, they often had to be taken against their will. Men complained that women were cold, unresponsive, frigid.... They wanted their women wanton. They wanted their women wild. Now women were finally learning to be wanton and wild—and what happened? The men wilted.
    —Erica Jong (b. 1942)
