Into the lives of Marion, Nora, Rosalie and Susan erupts Leslie Back, an old flame not quite extinguished. Recently widowed, thought somewhat weepy, Leslie is still a man with the Life Force. Old secrets stir, old rivalries are resurrected and scores are settled.

‘Fay Weldon’s Life Force is a scathing indictment of rampant seed-shedding and moral vanity. Through the voices of women Beck has seduced, Weldon joyously wields the scalpel, cutting deep into the sexual psyches of both men and women.’
‘Weldon sends up all the novels of sex’n’marriage’n’kids in NW3 by triumphantly writing one of her own that is witty enough to finish off the breed.’
Mail on Sunday
“This is Weldon at her most wicked.”
“Full of scandal and the joy and guilt of sex.”
“Weldon struts her more robust stuff.”
“She can tease, tantalise and scandalise better than any other writer today.”
“Bleak, too, and full of wisdom that goes beyond the conventional view and the received idea.”
“Here is Weldon, witty, ingenious, outrageous, absorbed in sexual currents, leaping from character to character or year to year with the sure-footedness of an Alpine chamois. Weldon has precisely captured the atmosphere of a time and a final exchange of power. Grim stuff, and Weldon doesn’t pull her punches.”
“Everywhere is the unmistakable zippiness of her narrative style.”
“A scathing indictment of rampant seed-shedding and moral vanity. Through the voices of women Beck has seduced, Weldon joyously wields the scalpel.”
