‘Sparkling, sharply observing, insights delivered with a light touch that puts us in a good mood, however dark the comedy.’
‘Weldon’s writing is seductively readable, her magic realism is never pretentious; it is understated and convincing.’
Times Literary Supplement

• The Pardoner
Seven brilliant stories from the hyper-real world of Weldonia, where an artist's slave can be sure she's free; where everything can be explained only by lies; where to win is always to lose.
In fact, all of human life is here, and still in amazingly good heart, considering.
"Weldon writes as if she were Virginia Woolf and Roseanne Arnold joined at the hip. She is literary, well-read, totally in control, sharp as a needle and off the wall."
