182. Erica Jong Parody

Q: Did the Lampoon ever parody Erica “Fear of Flying” Jong, either briefly or at length? Seems like something Ellis Weiner, in particular, would have done a good job with.

A: According to Carol, in the Comments link: “Ellis Weiner wrote ‘How to Rave About Your Own Life’, a short parody of Erica Jong for ‘A Fourth of July Garland of Parodies’ in the Lampoon‘s ‘100th Anniversary’ issue of July ’78. NatLamp graduate Anne Beatts wrote a longer parody called ‘Fear of Fucking’ in “Titters”, a book of humor by women she edited in ’76.” (Thanks again, Carol!)
