9780099147718: The Heart of the Country

Fay Weldon, the acclaimed author of The Life and Loves of a She-Devil (also a major motion picture starring Meryl Streep and Roseanne Barr), once again tickles the myth of the suburban countryside in this invigorating romp through marital chaos and the battle of the sexes.

From Publishers Weekly:

The strikingly inventive British author ( The Shrapnel Academy , The Life and Loves of a She-Devil ) delivers another biting satire on men's inhumanity to women. Weldon sets the scene in a small town where upper-class Natalie is left suddenly penniless after her husband scarpers with his secretary. Sonia, a woman similarly deserted but accustomed to coping with draconian welfare officials, gives Natalie and her children shelter as well as priceless advice. As local males lust for Natalie's body (and the posh house they assume will come with it), Sonia plans a twist on the annual town carnival, a demonstration hinted at throughout the narrative, and occuring at the novel's horrifying conclusion. This strong story about damaged lives is memorable as well for the lusty humor that makes all Weldon's books irresistible. Literary Guild, Doubleday Book Club alternates.

From Library Journal:

Natalie Harris, a young housewife and mother living a quiet life in southern England, finds out what the real world is like when her husband walks out on her. Vulnerable and naive, she slides all the way down the social scale until she is no better off than Sonia, the narrator. The world according to Sonia, who has ended up in a psychiatric hospital and tells the story retrospectively, revolves around a single theme: unscrupulous and corrupt men victimize women. Even depression is a male disease that women catch. This angry feminist novel is deftly told and sometimes funny, but more often it is mean-spirited and depressing, and the climax is nasty.Bryan Aubrey, Fairfield, Ia.
