Description

'A savage, sadistic even, but beautifully and compellingly written satire' Sunday Express

Ruth Patchett never thought of herself as particularly devilish.

'The fun grows steadily blacker and wilder' Guardian

Rather the opposite in fact - simply a tall, not terribly attractive woman living a quiet life as a wife and mother in a respectable suburb. But when she discovers that her husband is having a passionate affair with the lovely romantic novelist Mary Fisher, she is so seized by envy that she becomes truly diabolic. Within weeks she has burnt down the family home, collected the insurance, made love to the local drunk and embarked on a course of destruction and revenge.

'A tour de force: a macabre, fast-moving moral fable' The Times

A blackly comic satire of the war of the sexes, The Life and Loves of a She-Devil is the fantasy of the wronged woman made real.
