9780006545927: Darcy's Utopia

A provocative view of modern society weaved into a tale of explosive love and, perhaps, even, black magic.

Scandalous Eleanor Darcy, wild young wife of a world-famous economist, sketches her vision of Utopia to two journalists, Hugo Vansitart and Valarie Jones. In glorious detail, she describes an earthly paradise of peace, love and technological progress where sex is plentiful and money does not exist. Such is Eleanor’s charisma that, to their own astonishment, Hugo and Valerie abandon their families and set up home together om a Holiday Inn.

Review:

‘To read Fay Weldon is like drinking Champagne’
Times

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

‘Prolific and provocative, Fay Weldon shines brightest in the league table of British women novelists’
Time Out

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

‘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

From the Back Cover:

“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
