Book Beginning: Parachutes & Kisses by Erica Jong

Please join me every Friday to share the first sentence (or so) of the book you are reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires. Please remember to include the title of the book and the author's name.

EARLY BIRDS: I am experimenting with getting this post up Thursday evening for those who like to get their posts up and linked early on. We'll try it this way for a couple of months to see if people like the option of early posting. If you have feelings one way or the other, please comment.

TWITTER, ETC: If you are on Twitter, Google+, or other social media, please post using the hash tag #BookBeginnings. I am trying to follow all Book Beginning participants on whatever interweb sites you are on, so please let me know if I have missed any and I will catch up.

MR. LINKY: Please leave a link to your post below. If you don't have a blog, but want to participate, please leave a comment with your Book Beginning.


Isadora, separated from Josh, is like a kid in her twenties.

-- Parachutes & Kisses by Erica Jong.  This is the third book in Jong's Isadora Wing trilogy that started with the terrifically good Fear of Flying (almost reviewed here) and How to Save Your Own Life (reviewed here).


  1. Thanks so much for hosting! I am giving away 2 copies of "Cleans Up Nicely" on today's post so I hope everyone comes by and comments for a chance to win!

  2. I think that is a good series to read. I'll go look up for this one.

  3. Wow, I've read the first two, but somehow missed this one. Adding it to my list!

  4. I started reading Erica Jong's Fear of Flying but never got through it! Looks like an author I need to get back to :)

  5. This series sounds great - will have to check it out.

  6. Hi Gilion,

    I have never been tempted by any of Jong's writing, I'm afraid, so this probably won't be a book for me.

    I checked out the reviews and blurb about all the books in the series and can only conclude that Isadora is never going to be happy with what she has going on in her life and is never going to commit to anything or anyone.

    Thanks for sharing your lines and hosting and I hope that you enjoy the book.


  7. I haven't read any books in this series.

    THANKS for sharing.

  9. Interesting opening, I wonder why Isadora is like a kid in her twenties...

    Happy reading! My Friday Book Memes
