Darcy's Utopia

About the Author

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.


On the eve of interviewing the fabulous and elusive Eleanor Darcy, journalists Valerie and Hugo meet and shack up in a hotel on the dubious strength of Hugo's credit card. As Eleanor (nee Apricot Smith) expounds her utopian plans for religion, education, sex, and money, their spontaneous passion changes course. Weldon mingles tart social commentary and political satire in a novel that is both somber and very funny. The question and answer format is awkward, however; and the humor is very British. Weldon is the author of plays, nonfiction, and such novels as The Life and Loves of a She-devil. Buy this one where there is demand. Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 11/1/90.-- Maurice Taylor, Brunswick Cty. Lib., Southport, N.C.

`To read Fay Weldon is like drinking Champagne'

`A crash course in philosophy, religion, politics, idealism, with sexual passion, love and the nature of betrayal thrown in'
Woman's Journal

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

`Fay Weldon provokes you to think. You'd expect no less of the social and sexual soothsayer of our literary times'

`Darcy's Utopia is among the most frolicsome of her novels, but it still manages to display her quiet, grave insistence that we change our ways.'
Sunday Times

This amorphous but entertaining novel explores economics, politics and spirituality through the ruminations of a flaky/wise heroine. (July)
