A spiky, feisty, hilarious collection of stories that exposes women's clumsy, often doomed, attempts to negotiate a smooth path through life.
Abandoned wives remain as lingering presences in the homes of their ex-husband's new girlfriends; beautiful young models find their misdemeanours exposed for all the world to see in the tabloids; middle-aged women get swept off their feet and into the criminal underworld by charismatic con-men; young trophy wives get thrown in jail after over-exuberant cavorting on their private yachts; mothers beg their 30-something career-minded daughters to freeze their eggs in the hope that they may one day bear their grandchildren.
Bold, glamorous, sexy, unrepentant, Fay Weldon's heroines offer a quite unique view of the world as they face their trials without fear or trepidation. Both her legions of existing fans and new readers will be enthralled.
