Hard Time to be a Father
Bertrams Print On Demand, 2008 - 272 pages
Fay Weldon won the Silver Pen Award for her last collection of stories, " Wicked Women."
Here are nineteen sparkling new tales about the way we live now, as lovers, partners, children, parents. Or alone. Stories of passion, desire and necessary restraint; of the near future, the recent past; of old habits, new technology; of won't-be mothers and would-be fathers; of houses ancient and modern. Stories, in fact, to enlighten us to the true and timeless nature of the human condition, in this new age of self-knowledge.
