Wicked Women by Fay Weldon

Wicked Women by Fay Weldon. 1997 Atlantic Monthly Press, first U.S. edition, 309 pages. Weldon was a prolific novelist and author, with an outsized personality that was hard to pin down, and willing to sell out her writing for any fee, and with such enthusiasm one couldn't fault her. She was never afraid to say anything. In her Guardian obituary: "It would be wrong to dismiss Weldon as a publicity-seeking controversialist. Though she could be infuriatingly contradictory, she saw the pain of the human condition out of the corner of mischievous eyes." Wicked Women is a book of short stories.

"No one feared nuclear extinction any more. Death by passive smoking seemed a more prescient danger."
