'Fay Weldon's Life Force is a scathing indictment of rampant seed-shedding and moral vanity. Through the voices of women Beck has seduced, Weldon joyously wields the scalpel, cutting deep into the sexual psyches of both men and women.' Woman's Journal 'Weldon sends up all the novels of sex 'n' marriage 'n' kids in NW3 by triumphantly writing one of her own that is witty enough to finish off the breed.' Mail on Sunday 'Bleak, too, and full of wisdom that goes beyond the conventional view and the received idea.' Cosmopolitan 'Here is Weldon witty, ingenious, outrageous, absorbed in sexual currents, leaping from character to character or year to year with the sure-footedness of an Alpine chamois. Weldon has precisely captured the atmosphere of a time and a final exchange of power. Grim Stuff, and Weldon doesn't pull her punches.' Scotsman
