Reviews

'Elegantly written, sharply perceptive and fantastically good fun' * Daily Mail *
'She's a queen of words. A tribal elder' -- Caitlin Moran
'Funny, waspish and acute ... A fierce retrospective on the achievements of the women's movement - and its cost - and a defiant hurrah for grumpy old women' * The Times *
'One of our very best writers' * The Sunday Times *
'A brilliant black comedy' * Mail on Sunday Event magazine *
'Fay has been incredibly vocal about transgender issues, and her new book features her trademark black humour - and some shocking twists' * Closer *
'A bawdy controversial read' * Woman & Home *
'It's good to have Fay Weldon back, poking the hornet's nest of modern feminism with her sly eye' * Daily Express *
'Weldon's amused defiance is irresistible' * Mail on Sunday. *
'Scalpel-sharp and laceratingly funny' * Good Housekeeping. *
'A delight to read. Each chapter has a hilarious heading, revealing Weldon's affinity with the pre-Romantic tradition of Sterne and Swift' * Irish Times *
'Fay Weldon's new novel is certain to be a bestseller' * Catholic Herald *
'I suspect Weldon couldn't care less about political correctness ... for her, it's all literary mischief' * i newspaper *
'A kind of coda to a brilliant literary career ... The satire is neat and very funny ... A politically incorrect novel that is at the same time deliberately indecorous in a way that will make anyone feel like a prude if they object to a comedy as swaggering in its confidence and as subtle in its observation as this ... Obviously the work of a genius' * Sydney Morning Herald *
