Sequel To Fay Weldon's The Life And Loves Of A She-Devil Announced
In 1983, Fay Weldon published her most famous book, The Life and Loves of a She-Devil, a wickedly funny feminist novel about a woman seizing power in a male-dominated world.
But as Fay Weldon has controversially claimed recently in the media, the male-dominated world of the seventies and eighties no longer exists. These days, women not only have all the power, they also enjoy an easier life than men.
So what would the She Devil look like now?
The answer is in Weldon's brilliant sequel, The Death of a She Devil, newly acquired by Head of Zeus. This provocative fable about the fallout from the feminist revolution stars a new kind of 'heroine'. Tyler Patchett is an ultra-confident twenty-something man. But he won't be satisfied with his life until he can transition into the ultimate symbol of power and status: a woman...
The Death of a She Devil will be published by Head of Zeus in April 2017.
