Copyright 1983, published by Coronet Books. 240 pages. From the back cover:

What can a woman do when her husband accuses her of being a 'she-devil' and leaves her for another woman? Especially if that woman is six foot two, has a jutting jaw, a hooked nose and moles on her chin. And her rival is petite, ultra-feminine and a successful novelist ...

'A beautifully and compellingly written satire' -- SUNDAY EXPRESS

Very dark, not quite what I expected. Good and kind of though-provoking revenge story...but a little sad.

For Women everywhere, this is a FUN book- would make a great beath or pool-side read!

Such a fun read, especially for any woman who has felt less than beautiful at any time. I haven't seen the movie, but plan on renting it soon. (Some underlining of pithy quotes.)

Odd but compelling, I think. If you're a woman and you've ever been angry at a man you might be able to relate. Still not sure how I feel about the end, but overall I liked the book.

Fay Weldon at her acidic, roaringly funny top form. see the BBC version for a much better film of this movie.

"A devilishly clever parable about the nature of love and the nature of power." - Erica Jong
