Down Among the WomenFay Weldon

'She's a queen of words' CAITLIN MORAN.

Down among the women. What a place to be!

In the Fifties, women were looked after by nice, breadwinning men: or so went the myth. Eighteen-year-old unmarried mother Scarlet, a lost child recovering from her first abortion, looks at the world with her friends and begins to see the truth.

An icily funny account of a dawning feminist sensibility in a world where the romantic ideal of love and domesticity ruled.

After hard times and odd jobs as a lone parent, Fay Weldon became one of the top advertising copywriters of her generation. She moved to TV drama (writing the pilot episode of the iconic series Upstairs Downstairs) then turned to novels – including the classic The Life and Loves of a She Devil and The Cloning of Joanna May. Fay's sequence of novels about the Dilberne family, which encompasses her Love and Inheritance trilogy and Before the War, draws to a close with this final instalment, After the Peace. Fay's been made a CBE for services to literature and she's currently a Professor of Creative Writing at Bath Spa University.

'Fay Weldon is a national treasure.', Literary Review

'Wickedly stylish. Bursting with intelligence and fire.', Daily Telegraph

'Prolific and provocative, Weldon shines brightest in the league table of British women novelists.', Time Out
