Life Force

by Fay Weldon

Life Force Synopsis

This copulative sotry of passion, jealousy, fidelity and faithlessness is Weldon at her most provocative. Into the lives of Marion, Nora, Roaslie and Susan erupts Leslie Beck, an old flame not quite extinguished. Recently widowed, though somewhat weepy Leslie is still a man with the Life Force. To the four friends he is Leslie the Lucky, Leslie of the magnificent dong - his force forever pulls. Old secrets stir, old rivalries are resurrected ans cores are settled as the friends are catapulted back into their murky past.

Life Force Press Reviews

`Fay Weldon's Life Force is a scathing indictment of rampant seed-shedding and moral vanity. Through the voices of women Beck has seduced, Weldon joyously wields the scalpel, cutting deep into the sexual psyches of both men and women.' Woman's Journal `Weldon sends up all the novels of sex `n' marriage `n' kids in NW3 by triumphantly writing one of her own that is witty enough to finish off the breed.' Mail on Sunday `Bleak, too, and full of wisdom that goes beyond the conventional view and the received idea.' Cosmopolitan `Here is Weldon witty, ingenious, outrageous, absorbed in sexual currents, leaping from character to character or year to year with the sure-footedness of an Alpine chamois. Weldon has precisely captured the atmosphere of a time and a final exchange of power. Grim Stuff, and Weldon doesn't pull her punches.' Scotsman
