Godless in Eden

by Fay Weldon

Godless in Eden Synopsis

A selection of lectures and essays contributed to newspapers, magazines and books over recent years, revised for this volume and all highly relevant to today. In these essays find a portrait of the times, to help us map our way through the new Garden of Eden, in which men hold the baby and women the mobile phone. The garden is timeless, its beauties are ineradicable, the angel's blazing sword no longer bars the way - so what's going wrong? Tricky to see the wood for the trees in this new-old land, hard to find a Third Way through: let this collection point the way. From the changing face of government, the feminisation of politics, the stamping of the warrior foot, to whence and whither Feminism, via the dangerous new cult of Therapism, to our turbulent and benighted Royals, brushing up against the famous (Roseanne, Jamie Lee Curtis, Jean Paul Gaultier) on the way - it's all here. Plus a rare glimpse of the author's life and loves.
