The one and only Fay Weldon writes her one and only autobiography.
From the 1930s to the 1990s, Fay Weldon has seen and lived our times. As a child in New Zealand, as young and poor in London, as unmarried mother, as wife, lover, playwright, novelist, feminist, anti-feminist, spag-bol-cook, winer and diner, there are few waterfronts that she hasn't covered, few battles she hasn't fought. An icon to many, a thorn in the flesh to others, she has never failed to excite, madden or interest. Her life and times cover love, sex, babies, blokes, poverty, work, politics and Very Famous Names. The reader might feel inadequate, but will never be bored!
Moving from New Zealand to London to Scotland, from the UK to points east and west, Weldon has sipped, gulped and sometimes spat out the things that make us what we are today.
