JONG, Erica (Mann)
(1942-)
   US poet and novelist, best known for the FEMINIST energy of her first novel, Fear of Flying (1971). Her only tale of genre interest, Serenissima (1987), is a timeslip fantasy with some sf languageinattentively buttressing the premise. The protagonist, haunted amid the playfully sketched glitterati of the Venice film festival, slips back to the 16th century (TIME TRAVEL), where she meets a vacationing Shakespeare and has sex with him. Dying, she is - anticlimactically - reborn in the here and now.
