Death of a She Devil

Front Cover
Head of Zeus, Oct 5, 2017 - Gender expression - 352 pages

"The women of the world gave up romance, subservience and submission, and once empowered, took to hard work, truth and reality. Much good has it done them." Ruth Patchett, the original She Devil, is now 84, and keen to retire. But who can take up her mantle? Enter Tyler Patchett, our new kind of heroine and Ruth's grandson. He's an ultra-confident, 23-year-old man: beautiful, resentful and unemployed. Tyler won't be satisfied until he can transition into the ultimate symbol of power and status. A woman. In Fay Weldon's 1983 classic, The Life and Loves of a She Devil, women fought men for power and won. In 2017, men take a decisive step to get their power back.
