Death of a She Devil
Everyone's talking about feminism and gender. But to make up your own mind, you need to discover the She Devil for yourself. In 1983, Fay Weldon published her most famous book, The Life and Loves of a She Devil. Written in the teeth of the feminist revolution, it is a wickedly funny revenge fantasy about a woman seizing power in a male-dominated world. But these days, it's women who have the power. What's more, they enjoy an easier life than men. So what would the She Devil look like now? The answer is in this brilliant sequel. Lewis Patchett is a new kind of 'heroine'. He's an ultra-confident, twenty-something man. But he won't be satisfied with his life until he can transition into the ultimate symbol of power and status: a woman...
'Elegantly written, sharply perceptive and fantastically good fun' Daily Mail. 'She's a queen of words. A tribal elder' Caitlin Moran. 'Funny, waspish and acute ... a fierce retrospective on the achievements of the women's movement' The Times. 'One of our very best writers' The Sunday Times. 'A brilliant black comedy' Mail on Sunday.
Weldon's work includes more than twenty novels, five collections of short stories, several children's books, nonfiction books, magazine articles, and a number of plays. She was awarded a CBE in 2001.
