A distillation of our times. Eleven short stories from this brilliant contemporary writer. Watching Me, Watching You was Fay Weldon's first collection of short stories. They vary widely in theme, while remaining avowedly feminist, sometimes bitter, sometimes angry, yet always handled with wit, irony and courage. A sense of sisterhood is one of the most important qualities a woman may possess and its loss, as in one particular story, 'Alopecia', can bring tragedy. On the other hand, in 'Threnody', a women's commune can be gently mocked, and the failings of the leading characters are human rather than masculine. Fay Weldon's observation is always wonderfully acute and Watching Me, Watching You is dominated throughout by her humour and intensity of purpose, giving to these stories a marvellous strength and unity.
Fay Weldon was born and raised in New Zealand. Her novels and short stories best-sell around the world and wherever they go are awarded great critical acclaim. Her film and TV work wins enthusiastic viewers by the million, worldwide.
