Moon Over Minneapolisby Fay Weldon

In this superlative anthology, Fay Weldon introduces readers to a cast of mothers, children, wives, and lovers – all of them unforgettable, timeless female characters. In 'Subject to Diary,' a successful forty-ish career woman sits in an abortion clinic pondering motherhood.

In 'The Year of the Green Pudding,' a woman who seems to doom everyone and everything she touches vows never to fall in love again. And an analyst's office is the setting for a series of stories that feature four female patients – including a murderer – who lay bare their souls.

Now in her ninth decade, Fay Weldon is one of the foremost chroniclers of our time, a novelist who spoke to an entire generation of women by daring to say the things that no one else would. Her work ranges over novels, short stories, children's books, nonfiction, journalism, television, radio, and the stage. She was awarded a CBE in 2001.

After hard times and odd jobs as a lone parent, Fay Weldon became one of the top advertising copywriters of her generation. She moved to TV drama (writing the pilot episode of the iconic series Upstairs Downstairs) then turned to novels – including the classic The Life and Loves of a She Devil and The Cloning of Joanna May. Fay's sequence of novels about the Dilberne family, which encompasses her Love and Inheritance trilogy and Before the War, draws to a close with this final instalment, After the Peace. Fay's been made a CBE for services to literature and she's currently a Professor of Creative Writing at Bath Spa University.

'Fay Weldon is a national treasure.' Literary Review

'Wickedly stylish. Bursting with intelligence and fire.' Daily Telegraph

'Prolific and provocative, Weldon shines brightest in the league table of British women novelists.' Time Out
