Ruth Patchett never thought of herself as particularly devilish. Rather the opposite in fact - simply a tall, not terribly attractive woman living a quiet life as a wife and mother in a respectable suburb. But when she discovers that her husband is having a passionate affair with the lovely romantic novelist Mary Fisher, she is so seized by envy that she becomes truly diabolic. Within weeks she has burnt down the family home, collected the insurance, made love to the local drunk and embarked on a course of destruction and revenge.

A blackly comic satire of the war of the sexes, THE LIFE AND LOVES OF A SHE DEVIL is the fantasy of the wronged woman made real.
Fay Weldon is well known at home and abroad as a novelist, playwright, critic and screenwriter, several of whose novels have been adapted for film and television, including THE LIFE AND LOVES OF A SHE DEVIL.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from What a Woman Ruth is a cunning, manipulative and calculating woman or shall I say "She-Devil". She orchestrated the perfect demise of a cad (man). The book was brillently written. It took a bit to get into Ms Weldons's rythum but once that was accomplished the reading was invigerating. Ms Weldon must have quite the devious mind to think up this fabulous plot. A great read! Thank-you
