Nancy Friday

NEW YORK (AP) — Nancy Friday, a journalist and author whose best-selling “My Secret Garden” was a landmark compilation of women’s sexual fantasies, has died at age 84.

Friday died Sunday morning in her Manhattan apartment. She died of complications from Alzheimer’s.

“My Secret Garden: Women’s Sexual Fantasies,” explicit letters and interviews gathered by Friday, was published in 1973 and is widely regarded as the first major book to compile women’s sexual fantasies.

Her other books included “Women On Top,” “Jealousy” and “Beyond My Control.”
