9780007194520: Mantrapped

A brilliant, inventive and endlessly delightful new memoir from Fay Weldon, one of our most respected commentators on sex, relationships and gender, that picks up where her acclaimed Auto da Fay left off.Fay Weldon, one of our cleverest and best-loved novelists, returns to the rich material of her own eventful life in this stylish blend of memoir and fiction. Mantrapped is the continuing story of Weldon, writer, mother, daughter, sister, cook, campaigner, juggler of life, time, work and money. Weldon has been rich and poor, sad and happy, and throughout it all, well and truly mantrapped - but does not regret it one bit. From 1960s London (wild parties, no money) to 1970s Somerset (animals, wild parties, no money) Weldon has lived a life rich in adventure and courage. The things you regret, as she points out, are what you don't do, not what you do.In this vastly entertaining book she argues that in a world in which the writer can no longer hope to be anonymous, it is devious, and indeed dishonourable, to keep yourself out of your own books. True to her word, in Mantrapped we get Fay Weldon at her most charismatic, perceptive and entertaining.

About the Author:

Fay Weldon was born and raised in New Zealand. Her novels and short stories are released to great commercial and critical acclaim around the world, and she has also done significant work in the fields of television and film.

From AudioFile:

This odd book--a "reality novel"--switches between Trisha Perle, former lottery winner, who has recklessly run through her £3 million, and author Weldon's infusions of her thoughts about life and the book she is writing--this one. When not interrupted by Weldon's reflections, Trisha's story of accidentally switching souls and finding herself in the body of Peter, a young journalist (and he in hers), is deliciously ironic. Narrator Rula Lenska's deep, throaty rasp handles both Trisha's and Peter's stories with charm and wit. Lenska's voice would be worth hearing even if she were reading a grocery list, and Weldon's comments in her own voice are decidedly droll and satirical, but as a conjoined novel on audio, the whole thing becomes a jumble.
