Product description


‘No matter how duff you are feeling, it would be hard to read this novel and not feel a new woman (or even a new man?) afterwards. Splitting is a shout of triumph about a woman who does more than survive, and its anger is tempered by mirth. Weldon has reinvented herself as a modern Restoration comic. Her story has a seventeenth-century savagery, witty and calculating sexuality.’

‘Stirs wit and sorrow into a literary cauldron of mischief, power and justice.’

--This text refers to the Paperback edition.

From the Back Cover

Jelly White, secretary extraordinaire; Lady Rice, soon to be divorced wife of Sir Edwin; Angel, promiscuous to a degree; Angelica, ex-kinky virgin who gave birth to them all…

The events in Fay Weldon's latest novel are set in motion when Sir Edwin Rice institutes divorce proceedings against his wife and she, agonised, disguises herself and takes a job as secretary to his divorce lawyer, libidinous Brian Moss.

Daring and deliciously shocking Fay Weldon's 'Splitting' is a riveting listen!

4.0 out of 5 stars Like Bridget Jones' Diary? Similar feel here! 6 Dec. 2001
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This is one of those delicious little paperbacks that makes you laugh aloud with its acidic absurdity. Weldon assumes an almost "once upon a time" tone to tell a fairy tale gone bad, what happens when the once-rich-but-titleless lady and the once-poor-and-titled man split up. Splitting refers not only to the various couplings of Edwin and Angelica's little clique and their inevitable upsets, but also what happens to poor Angelica's mind as it attempts to remedy the situation. You cannot help but root for Angelica and to feel like and dislike for her various personalities, and even the ones you dislike will amuse you. Not a serious read, but definitely fun to curl up with on a rainy day. (Beware trying it as a "read to sleep book" - it's humour is too sharp for that; I stayed up much later than I should have for lack of reader self-control.)
3.0 out of 5 stars It's okay. 24 July 2014
By P. M. Rivard - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I enjoyed the book, with its unusual plot and interesting main character. What greatly detracted from it was the conceit that a character would split into many personalities from only everyday stresses. As the book is otherwise realistic, I could not suspend belief. I do not want to give anything away so I will only say that.

4.0 out of 5 stars one of the latest books by Weldon deserves 4 stars IMHO 9 Jun. 1999
By Elena Alperovich - Published on
Format: Paperback
For those who follow the books by Fay Weldon as they come out... i wouldn't call it her best but it is up there, with the very enjoyable ones, i liked it just a bit less than 'Worst Fears' which is an amazingly well written book with the sharpest observations and the typical dark, witty humor so characteristic of Fay Weldon
