Review:

`Precise, compassionate and murderously funny.' Sunday Times`A wry yet ultimately romantic novel...Weldon's sardonic tongue is in her cheek as she examines the conventions of modern marriage.' Publishers' Weekly`Fay Weldon's voice is as unmistakeable as her acerbic wit.' Financial Times`Fay 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
