'Wonderfully fluent and entertaining...studded with her trademark gems of crisp observations...you can't put this terrific book down. You can always trust Fay to be provocative - and this time she excels herself.' Daily Mail 'Engrossing and entertaining. This is the sort of book stuffed full of things that you hope are made up but fear are true.' Observer 'One of the most prolific, entertaining and provocative of contemporary women writers has sought to make retrospective sense of the muddle and unexpectedness of life. Like her novels, the surface sparkles along merrily enough but there are darker currents beneath.' Sunday Telegraph 'It is an astonishing story lightly and deftly told. It will delight Weldon's many fans. Gripping.' Daily Telegraph 'The rich, fruity haphazardness of her experience will startle and amaze...as they say, you couldn't make it up.' Sunday Times 'Hilarious...entertaining...compelling..."Auto da Fay" is just like its author: big, blousy and sometimes hard to believe. In the end, though, they both demand our respect.' Independent on Sunday
