Description
Via 20 madcap tales, Fay Weldon takes readers into a world peopled with therapists who blithely destroy marriages and family ties, husbands and lovers whose greatest cruelty is their indifference, and clever women navigating the perils of domesticity. Her wicked humor and seasoned wisdom are as evident here as always--and tempered by great compassion for the foibles of the human heart.

display_descriptionA New York Times Notable Book of the Year, Wicked Women brings together twenty tales that lay bare the minds and hearts of men, women, and children Victims, liberators, blackmailers, healers, and ghosts-they're just a few of the fascinating men and women you'll meet in this stellar, boundary-defying anthology. From a heartless lover to a therapist who's exposed for being a child hater, Weldon's characters search for meaning, betray their vows, take pleasure in others' misfortunes, or get pushed out of the family manse by their grasping offspring. Whether she's depicting a child's reaction to the chaotic lives of her parents, or envisioning a terrifying futuristic society, Fay Weldon wields her prolific pen like a sword. In a pre-apocalyptic world where nothing is sacred, Wicked Women reveals the infinite ability of men and women to wound, to grieve, and to love.
