Fay Weldon won the Silver Pen Award for her last collection of stories, Wicked Women.
Here are nineteen sparkling new tales about the way we live now, as lovers, partners, children, parents. Or alone. Stories of passion, desire and necessary restraint; of the near future, the recent past; of old habits, new technology; of won't-be mothers and would-be fathers; of houses ancient and modern. Stories, in fact, to enlighten us to the true and timeless nature of the human condition, in this new age of self-knowledge.
The winner of the Silver Pen Award for her most recent collection of fiction, Wicked Woman, the popular author delivers nineteen fresh tales, laced with satiric wit, about very contemporary lovers, parents, and families wrestling with change.
