9780006544425: Darcy's Utopia

The author of the novels Life Force, The Hearts and Lives of Men, and The Life and Loves of a She-Devil offers an irreverent, wildly funny, and unerringly persuasive answer to the ever-enticing question: If I ruled the world, what would I do? "A wickedly funny, multilayered treatise on feminism, marriage, sex, journalism, and the class system".--People.

From the Publisher:

'Weird, wild and wonderful reading.' - Best

'Fay Weldon provokes you to think. You'd expect -no less of the social and sexual soothsayer of our literary times.' - Company

'Weaves a provocative view of modern society into a tale of explosive love and, perhaps, even, black magic. This is a dazzling tour de force from one of Britain's most inspiring and intelligent novelists today.' - Cosmopolitan

'A crash course in philosophy, religion, politics and idealism, with sexual passion, love and the nature of betrayal thrown in.' - Woman's Journal

'A funny, irreverent, extremely witty book, about women's lot in today's world.' - Irish Press

'Darcy's Utopia is among the most frolicsome of her novels, but it still manages to display her quiet, grave insistence that we change our ways.' - Sunday Times

'She conjures away with her diverse properties - high comedy, political science, black magic as a clever juggler might deal simultaneously with an orange, a football and an inflated balloon.' - Guardian
