9780002239219: Wicked Women

Brilliant stories from the hyper-real world of Weldonia.

Brilliant stories from the hyper-real world of Weldonia, where self-deception rules; where a bully can believe he’s a victim; a blackmailer see herself as a healer; and an artist’s slave be sure she’s free.

Travel in space and time: meet Miss Jacobs, the silent psychoanalyst, who receives the confessions of saints and sinners; discover the heart of a nuclear scientist, forcibly retired, who does his hopeless best to resist the wiles of a self-seeking, talking, beautiful New Age journalist – in fact all human life is here, and still in amazingly good heart, considering.

Review:

‘Sparkling, sharply observing, insights delivered with a light touch that puts us in a good mood, however dark the comedy.’
Spectator

‘Weldon’s writing is seductively readable, her magic realism is never pretentious; it is understated and convincing.’
Times Literary Supplement

From the Back Cover:

• Love Among the Artists
• Leda and the Swan
• Valediction
• A Good Sound Marriage
• Santa Claus's New Clothes
• Baked Alaska
• 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."
MIRABELLA
