Praise for Fay Weldon’s short stories:

‘Weldon’s stories pull no punches. There is always humour.’

From the Back Cover:

From the pen of one of Britain’s leading writers come nineteen glittery tales about the way we live now, as lovers, partners, children, parents. Or alone.

Stories of passion, desire and necessary restraint;
of the near future, the recent past;
of old habits, new technology;
of won’t-be mothers and would-be fathers;
of houses, ancient and modern.
Stories in fact, to enlighten us to the true and timeless nature of the human condition in this the new age of self-knowledge.

“ Sparkling, sharply observing insights delivered with a light touch that puts us in a good mood, however dark the comedy.”
SPECTATOR
