I had this book in my virtual cart at Powells for months. Then, after finally buying and receiving it, it sat on my shelf for another couple months. It was well worth the wait! Hot damn Kate Millett, this may be the best book I've ever read about being crazy. Certain part of this book hit so close to home that I felt them in my soul. I will be rereading this book many times.

»Flying«, neben »Sita« Kate Milletts persönlichstes Buch, ist eine sehr genaue Beschreibung der ersten Jahre der Frauenbewegung und zugleich ein Stück Autobiographie einer ihrer aktivsten führenden Figuren. Kate Millett erinnert sich an ihre Kindheit, ihre Reisen, an ihre Ehe mit dem japanischen Bildhauer Fumio Yoshimura, ihre Schwierigkeiten, eine Identität zu finden als Künstlerin, zu entscheiden zwischen ihren Talenten als Bildhauerin, Schriftstellerin, Filmemacherin. Sie schildert ihren Weg in der Frauenbewegung, ihre Vereinnahmung nach dem internationalen Erfolg von »Sexus und Herrschaft« und die Schmähung nach ihrem öffentlichen Bekenntnis zur Homosexualität. Ihr leidenschaftliches Plädoyer gegen Monogamie, gegen einseitig festgelegte Geschlechterbeziehung kam für die Mehrheit der Frauen zu früh; sie fürchteten Diskriminierung von außen und Spaltung innerhalb der Bewegung.
