Death of a She Devil Reviews

'Elegantly written, sharply perceptive and fantastically good fun' Daily Mail.
'She's a queen of words. A tribal elder' Caitlin Moran.
'Funny, waspish and acute ... A fierce retrospective on the achievements of the women's movement - and its cost - and a defiant hurrah for grumpy old women' The Times.
'One of our very best writers' The Sunday Times.
'A brilliant black comedy' Mail on Sunday Event magazine.
'Fay has been incredibly vocal about transgender issues, and her new book features her trademark black humour - and some shocking twists' Closer.
'A bawdy controversial read' Woman & Home.
'It's good to have Fay Weldon back, poking the hornet's nest of modern feminism with her sly eye' Daily Express.
'Weldon's amused defiance is irresistible' Mail on Sunday.

'Fay Weldon's new novel is certain to be a bestseller' Catholic Herald.
'I suspect Weldon couldn't care less about political correctness ... for her, it's all literary mischief' i newspaper.
'A kind of coda to a brilliant literary career ... The satire is neat and very funny ... A politically incorrect novel that is at the same time deliberately indecorous in a way that will make anyone feel like a prude if they object to a comedy as swaggering in its confidence and as subtle in its observation as this ... Obviously the work of a genius' Sydney Morning Herald.
