Exceptional and hilarious book by Jong that is not so strong for its story (the mild adulterous adventure of an anxious middle-class Jewish woman in Europe in the 1970s), but for its context (the role of women in contemporary society, and the belittlement of female roles as perceived through the protagonist's experiences). Said to have 'kick-started second wave feminism', the arguments presented through literature remain sadly relevant and are all the more powerful for this. ( )
  ephemeral_future | Aug 20, 2020 |
An exploration into the psychology of a woman finding herself, at the vanguard of the feminist movement of the 1960s. It deserves its shocking reputation even all these years later, with a relish for scatology reminiscent of Rabelais, always with a commitment to tell the emotional truth about the main character's life. Gradually, in fits and starts, Isadora invents a way to define who she is independent of the men around her. Each of these guys is described with an instinct for depicting the deep possessiveness, amounting to creepiness, that constitutes a recurring theme in her life. By the end of her misadventures, I got the sense that she was going to try something different for a change in hopes that she might have a hope of happiness.
It's a challenge to read this now and keep in mind that the things the author was doing in the 1960s was considered far out of bounds, because of all the novels which she helped inspire in the years since. A profanity-laced story, full of shocking confessional scenes, with characters who refuse to recognize societal boundaries and go still (mostly) unpunished for their transgressions would not be considered unique in this century. Perhaps the author would be accused of button-pushing or seeking attention, but not of trying to pull down society as a whole.

Bigamy is having one husband too many. Monogamy is the same.
—Anonymous (a woman)
Alas! The love of women! It is known
To be a lovely and a fearful thing;
For all of theirs upon that die is thrown,
And if 'tis lost, life hath no more to bring
To them but mockeries of the past alone,
And their revenge is as the tiger's spring,
Deadly, and quick, and crushing; yet, as real
Torture is theirs — what they inflict they feel.

They are right; for man, to man so oft unjust,
is always so to women; one sole bond
Awaits them — treachery is all their trust;
Taught to conceal, their bursting hearts despond
Over their idol, till some wealthier lust
Buys them in marriage — and what rests beyond?
A thankless husband — next, a faithless lover —
Then dressing, nursing, praying — and all's over.

Some take a lover, some take drams or prayers,
Some mind their household, others dissipation,
Some run away, and but exchange their cares,
Losing the advantage of a virtuous station;
Few changes e'er can better their affairs,
Theirs being an unnatural situation,
From the dull palace to the dirty hovel :
Some play the devil, and then write a novel.
         — Lord Byron (from Don Juan)
