Product Description


Praise for Auto da Fay:

‘Wonderfully fluent and entertaining…studded with her trademark gems of crisp observations…you can't put this terrific book down. You can always trust Fay to be provocative – and this time she excels herself.’ Daily Mail

‘Engrossing and entertaining. This is the sort of book stuffed full of things that you hope are made up but fear are true.’ Observer

‘One of the most prolific, entertaining and provocative of contemporary women writers has sought to make retrospective sense of the muddle and unexpectedness of life. Like her novels, the surface sparkles along merrily enough but there are darker currents beneath.’ Sunday Telegraph

‘It is an astonishing story lightly and deftly told. It will delight Weldon's many fans. Gripping.’ Daily Telegraph

‘The rich, fruity haphazardness of her experience will startle and amaze…as they say, you couldn't make it up.’ Sunday Times

'When she's on form – marshalling those elegant, deadly, sentences – there's simply no touching Weldon as a writer.' Liz Hoggard, Observer

'[a] rich, sad, life-affirming book' Independent on Sunday

‘Fay Weldon is a national treasure’ Literary Review

Format: Paperback
This book is part novel, part Fay Weldon biography. It's not bad. However the biography part is much more interesting than the actual novel and I would have liked just to read about Fay's life, thoughts and experiences without interuption. The novel was relatively weak in comparison and had a disappointing and abrupt ending, which left me feeling dissatisfied, almost as if the author had run out of steam.

I loved this .oh Fay, you are so good. All those silly critics need to just lie down and worship. Mind you, a big chunk of the pleasure was revelling in sexy true lives gossip, but Fay knew that's what she was offering, and the whole point of the structure was to play with the at reality and with the reader, great stuff.
