9780006551676: What Makes Women Happy

A delicious treat of wisdom for better self-awareness and satisfaction. Tackle anxiety, envy, guilt, while giving in to sex, food, friends, family, shopping – and chocolate.

What makes women happy?
Nothing, for more than ten minutes at a time, so stop worrying.

In this new book, Fay Weldon offers wisdom gleaned from a remarkable life, a brilliantly successful career and a fair share of trouble. She explores what makes women happy, and what we can do to lead more rounded and desirable lives. Chapters contain sassy morals, illustrative and sympathetic stories, and a lot of frank advice to show women how to stop obssessing and feeling bad about themselves. Later chapters confront the four horses of a woman's apocalypse: despair, depression, isolation, and self-doubt.

A blend of philosophy, storytelling and self-help, this inspirational work shows Weldon at the peak of her creative powers, as brisk, stylish and entertaining as ever.

Review:

‘Wise, witty and barbed.’ Sunday Times

'A curious blend of self–help, social commentary and storytelling, Weldon is on witty and waspish good form.' Daily Mail

‘Weldon always has interesting things to say about the battle of the sexes and there is plenty of wry humour along the way.’ Mail on Sunday

‘Difficult to put down…as funny and considered as the rest of her work.’ Daily Telegraph

‘It’s all here: orgasms, hen nights, coveting best friends’ husbands, the joy of friends, sisters bearing gifts and caramelised bananas…This is brilliant to dip into when you’re annoyed with the world.’ Eve

‘If you want the truth about the man-woman thing, forget all those cloying self-help books and read Fay Weldon.’ The New York Times
