Abstract:

Ruth Patchett, the original she devil, is now eighty-four and keen to retire. But who can take up her mantle? Enter Tyler Patchett, our new kind of heroine and Ruth's grandson. He's an ultra-confident, 23-year-old man: beautiful, resentful and unemployed. Tyler won't be satisfied until he can transition into the ultimate symbol of power and status. A woman. In Fay Weldon's 1983 classic, 'The Life and Loves of a She Devil', women fought men for power and won. In 2017, men take a decisive step to get their power back.
