Isadora Wing is a compulsive daydreamer, seeker of saviours and fully-fledged phobic - as she travels to Vienna with her husband, jaunts around Europe with a Laingian analyst, and is forced to face her demons in this novel of liberation.
Compulsive daydreamer Isadora Wing doesn't want much - just to be free and to find the perfect, guiltless, zipless sexual encounter. Pursuing this ideal across two continents, she discovers just how hard it can be to make one's dreams come true. Though Isadora fears flying (in all possible senses), she forces herself to keep travelling, risking her marriage and even her life for her own special brand of liberation. This intensely witty and exuberant novel is about how she achieves her freedom and loses her fear.
