A Hard Time to be a Father

Published by Flamingo on 6th July 1998

Fay Weldon won the prized Silver Pen Award for her last collection of short stories, Wicked Women.

Here are nineteen glittery new tales of about the way we live now, as lovers, partners, children, parents. Or alone.

Stories of passion, desire, and neccessary restraint; of the near-future, the recent past; of old habits, new technology; of won’t-be mothers and would-be fathers; of houses ancient and modern. Stories, in fact, to enlighten us to the true and timeless nature of the human condition, in this new age of self-knowledge. What more can a writer be asked to provide?
