'A savage, sadistic even, but beautifully and compellingly written satire' Sunday Express Ruth Patchett never thought of herself as particularly devilish. 'The fun grows steadily blacker and wilder' Guardian Rather the opposite in fact - simply a tall, not terribly attractive woman living a quiet life as a wife and mother in a respectable suburb. But when she discovers that her husband is having a passionate affair with the lovely romantic novelist Mary Fisher, she is so seized by envy that she becomes truly diabolic. Within weeks she has burnt down the family home, collected the insurance, made love to the local drunk and embarked on a course of destruction and revenge. 'A tour de force: a macabre, fast-moving moral fable' The Times A blackly comic satire of the war of the sexes, The Life and Loves of a She-Devil is the fantasy of the wronged woman made real.

  1. Revenge is sweet?
    Freyla, 16 maj 2012

    How many of us tend to dream of a sweet revenge? Yes, I bet we all sometimes want to make a special person pay for hurting our feelings. This novel is a brilliant example of sweet revenge, and it just made me giggle as I read it under my blanket with a hot cup of coffee. I recommend this book to all women who have been left for another woman.
