Watching Me, Watching You
StorieseBook - 2013
Love, loss, and the ever-changing sexual battlefield are the themes of this early anthology by master storyteller Fay Weldon: In Christmas Tree, the adulterous playwright hero embarks on a quest for true love, perhaps the most self-deceiving state of all; Breakages explores the fragility of married life as a miserly vicar's infertile wife contemplates his much-darned socks amid ghostly visitations; the loss of hair and female friendship are brought to poignant life in Alopecia, while religion becomes an excuse for infidelity in Holy Stones; a holiday game of Monopoly reveals the widening holes in the fabric of a family in Man with No Eyes; and an old house and its inhabitants are haunted by doomed love in the title story.
