Illuminations from the dark side.
Mothers and children, lovers and wives, carers and betrayers. Some characters struggle, some dance or fly, some try suicide or murder. They may resort to reason and unreason. All of them make choices.
Deft, spare and incisively intelligent, Fay Weldon's collection of short stories is short through with her needling moral sense and her vibrant humour.
Fay Weldon was born and raised in New Zealand. Her novels and short stories best-sell around the world and wherever they go are awarded great critical acclaim. Her film and TV work wins enthusiastic viewers by the million, worldwide.
