This novel is as much about split personality and the components of the self as it is about genetic engineering with all its concomitant ethical and legal implications.

‘The deadly accuracy of Fay Weldon’s psychology makes this bizarre tale a compulsive page-turner’
‘A triumph of complex entertainment’
“Chemistry, not biochemistry, is what Fay Weldon’s style brings to mind: sodium fizzing its way across a watertank in the school laboratory – with occasional periods of smooth cruising before it crackles into energy again.”
NEW STATESMAN & SOCIETY
“Another totally original novel by the best woman writer in Britain. Sharp, funny, very modern.”
“Domestic and global concerns jostle along together: the manner is brisk, the plot wild, the content visionary. There is so much energy in this large, moral, angry book that it feels at times actively dangerous.”
“Her fertility of invention transforms the incredible into the irresistible.”
MAIL ON SUNDAY
“An outrageously funny novel.”
“The deadly accuracy of her psychology and the smooth balance of he writing makes this bizarre tale a compulsive page-turner.”
“A parable for our time. This is Weldon at her best: moralistic, but not preachy. A rattling read – with a brilliant twist at the end.”
