18 separate stories about women in our society. The themas going wide. From career, bearing - raising kids, mothers & over used wife's to student dream loves and personal failure in all those levels. Fay Weldon writes with a mean honesty using irony in short sentences.
What I learned from this book, I think about my life. I see some parallels and wonder where can i improve.

More about Fay Weldon...
“Some women are born mothers, some women become mothers, and some have motherhood thrust upon them. I struggled against it all my life, but I think the truth is I was probably born to it. I don't do badly, I don't do well, I just do it.” 1 likes
“Ruby once told Margaret that Ben was an accident, but it wasn't true. The house just felt empty without a baby in it. Good God, why do women have such feelings: and worse, having them, why do they then act upon them?” 1 likes
