The Hearts And Lives Of Men

By Fay Weldon


Clifford Wexford, the rising star of a Sotheby’s-like international art-auction house, and Helen Lally, the daughter of an eccentric artist, fall in love at first sight in the ’60s and make each other perfectly miserable for the next 20 years.

Their passionate squabbles lead to the disappearance of their beautiful three-year-old daughter Nell, whose subsequent bizarre adventures involve her with the motley likes of senile French devil worshippers and kind British drug-dealers. With characteristic arch wit, Fay Weldon spins a supple, modern-day fairytale, replete with heroes and heroines, evil-doers, fairy godmothers, castles and fateful coincidences.
