I struggled to get going with this one - for the oddest reason really - I didn't like the font. I've never had that issue arise with a book before. Anyway, I dipped into the book here and there to see if I could overcome that by getting drawn into the story, but the characters seemed narcistic; I didn't particularly want to get to know them, so I gave up.
The running joke is "the masculine gender includes the feminine, and the singular the plural". Apart from that, I'm afraid that I can't remember a thing about it. Not one of Fay Weldon's more successful efforts.
