Description
Annette Horrocks has every reason to be happy. She lives in a lovely London house with her devoted husband, Spicer; her first novel is about to be published; and after ten years of trying, she is finally pregnant. But Spicer is cruel and distant. He used to dismiss psychiatry, yet now he spouts New Age astrology and accuses Annette of murdering his inner child. Worse, Annette's friend Gilda discloses that Spicer is having an affair. Annette thinks she is going mad, and that's not even the end of it.

Trouble is fay Weldon's bracing, enticing return to the vengeful mode of The Life and Loves of a She-Devil--and a reminder that, while marriage has been a nightmare through the ages, now husbands have psychiatrists to make it worse.
